Story Behind the Curve

The relationship of having transportation to escaping poverty has been well established. For example, see this New York Times article.  

A limitation of the data reported here is that it does not include non-workers, individuals who may not work because of lack of access to transportation. In other words, this data should be seen as an underestimation of the number of individuals with no vehicle available to them.

FY20-21 note: This data is not yet available for 2020. The Census Bureau notes: "The Census Bureau will not release its standard 2020 ACS 1-year estimates because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on data collection. Experimental estimates, developed from 2020 ACS 1-year data, will be available on the ACS Experimental Data webpage no later than November 30th."
