ESI’s Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) work on car access in Philadelphia and accompanying infographics were featured in an article published on PlanPhilly.com on Wednesday, April 15.
Spearheaded by ESI’s Ethan Connor-Ross and Rinoa Guo, the PUMS work sought to answer questions regarding demographics of drivers in Philadelphia and the distributional impact of policies that make car ownership more or less expensive.
Among ESI’s findings:
- More households and workers have access to a car citywide than in Center City
- Car access with workers increases with income level
- Car access is lower for workers with less than a high school education
- Homeowners are more likely to have car access than renters
