City of Burnside

Overseas born - Number of cars per household

In the City of Burnside, 56.8% of people born overseas had access to two or more motor vehicles.

The ability of the population to access services and employment is strongly influenced by access to transport. The number of motor vehicles per household in the City of Burnside quantifies access to private transport for those born overseas.

The number of motor vehicles among the overseas-born population may be influenced by a variety of factors, such as the Age Structure of that population, ability to drive and availability of other transport options (eg. public transport) in the area of residence.

Number of motor vehicles data should also be viewed in conjunction with Number of Bedrooms and Household Size, as well as atlas maps showing the location of overseas-born population, to build up the story of migrant communities in City of Burnside.

Derived from the Census question:

'How many registered motor vehicles owned or used by residents of this dwelling were garaged or parked at or near this dwelling on the night of Tuesday, 9 August 2016?'
