An important question in urban planning and travel demand forecasting is where households with fewer or more cars live? and why? In this project, we visualize the spatial distribution of car ownership by dwelling in Melbourne metropolitan area using Census (2011) data. Every dot in the map represents a dwelling.
As expected, households who live within CBD and inner city areas have fewer cars, mostly 0 or 1 car per dwelling. As we go further out to the suburbs, car ownership rate increases.
