Car ownership and commuting behaviour statistics by OA

Data from the Census 2011 combining and processing three sets of data, including:

  • QS416EW - Car or van availability.
  • QS701EW - Method of travel to work.
  • QS702EW - Distance travelled to work.

The data is presented at Census Output Areas (OAs) for all OAs in Birmingham. The Centre for Sustainable Energy have processed the data to present some additional fields including identifying:

  • the average numbers of cars owned per households.
  • the main mode of transport used for a commute.
  • areas where the main commute is less than 5km
  • areas where the main mode of transport for commuting is a car or van.

The intention is to use the data to identify the most promising areas to encourage a modal shift from car use to more sustainable forms of transport.
