This indicator provides the share of households with no car available for the average neighborhood in which each racial group lives, for people of different income groups. For instance, if the value is 10% for affluent blacks, this statistic is interpreted as "The average affluent black household in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of households have no car available."
Income categories are defined as "poor" (income below $30,000 in 1999), "affluent" (income more than $60,000 in 1999), and "middle income" (those falling in between). Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
