Map of cars per household in London

Somewhat related to yesterday's post, here is a map showing the average rate of cars per household across London. It's my first time using Fusion Tables to produce a map so I'm not even sure if it's going to work okay. And I can't seem to attach a legend anywhere, which is a bit of an issue ...

If it does work, what it should show is that, unsurprisingly, there are fewer car-dependent households in inner London than in outer. This is based on 2001 Census data, so it will be interesting to see if there are any significant changes when the 2011 data is eventually released.

Link to the Fusion Table.

Census data is Crown Copyright 2010 from CasWeb, boundaries are Crown Copyright 2010 from UKBorders, an Edina/JISC supplied service.


  1. Would be interesting to correlate with tube map -does having underground stations reduce demand for a car? Or is it something simpler like household wealth

  2. Steve, I'm sure those two factors are very important, plus more idiosyncratic stuff like the availability and cost of parking nearby. Quite a few new-build developments in London have comparatively little parking space available.
