This updated dataset reports the percent of income for transportation costs at the county level for the Regional Moderate Household. Data were obtained from the Center for Neighborhood Technology’s Housing + Transportation Affordability Index (H+T Index).
Public Transit Stops and Stations
This layer displays the locations of transit stops and stations. Data was acquired from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is available for the 200+ metro areas.
Households with No Vehicle
Layers display information about household automobile ownership at the census block group level.
National Transporation Atlas, 2014
Multiple layers from the 2014 release of the National Transportation Atlas (NTA) are now available through Community Commons. The US Department of Transportation releases this annual dataset displaying many transportation related features, ranging from highway and airport locations to fatality accident locations and hazardous material transportation routes. The ‘view map’ link displays the motor vehicle fatality accidents. For additional indicators from the dataset, search the Map Room for the term NTA.
Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes
This layer displays the location or intersection of fatal crashes occurring in 2015.
Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes by Location, 2017
This layer displays the location or intersection of fatal crashes occurring in 2017. This layer can be toggled to view fatal crashes involving a drunk driver, and crashes with pedestrian fatalities.
Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes by Location, 2018
This layer displays the location or intersection of fatal crashes occurring in 2018. This layer can be toggled to view fatal crashes involving a drunk driver, and crashes with pedestrian fatalities.
Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes by County, 2014-2018
This layer displays the number and rate of fatalities from motor vehicle crashes ccurring between 2014 and 2018, aggregated by county. Unlike typical mortality data, this data layer represents the location of the fatal crash, and not the county of the decedent’s residence.
Fatal Motor Vehicle Crashes Involving Alcohol, 2014-2018
This layer displays the number and percentage of fatal vehicle crashes involving alcohol occurring between 2014 and 2018. Data are aggregated by county of occurrance.
Location Affordability Index for Family at AMI
This layer displays the estimated percentage of household income for housing and transportation for a family earning the Area Median Income (AMI). The expected values for housing and transportation are modelled by HUD using data from the US Census Bureau and the US Department of Transportation, including:
- The average household size for a family earning AMI in the nieghborhood
- The average number of workers, vehicles, and vehicle miles travelled for a family in the nieghborhood
- The average utility and rental costs or average utility and mortgage costs for a housing unit to accommodate the family size above
- The proportion of housing units that are either rentals or owner-occupied in the nieghborhood
Note: The LAI does not predict what families are actually paying to live in a particular area, but rather what a family would pay (either in USD or as a percentage of income) if average or reasonable housing and commuting conditions for a particular neighborhood were achieved.
