This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

Analysis of car ownership in 2016, indicates 55% of households in Hawthorn had access to two or more motor vehicles, compared to 58% in the City of Mitcham.

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 Hawthorn quantifies access to private transport and will be influenced by Age Structure and Household Type, which determine the number of adults present; access to Public Transport; distance to shops, services, employment and education; and Household Income. Depending on these factors, car ownership can be seen as a measure of advantage or disadvantage, or a neutral socio-economic measure, which impacts on the environment and quality of life.

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?'
