What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the percentage of households owning one or more vehicles.
Why this is important?  Vehicle ownership is directly related to personal driving which contributes to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Air pollutants are known factors in respiratory disease and chronic illnesses such as asthma, as well as cardiovascular disease and mortality. Studies have suggested that "car shedding" is financially beneficial and results in a personal overall positive sense of well being.

Technical Note:   Percentages were calculated based on American Community Survey data for Allen County - total number of households per year and households reporting one vehicle or more.
