We ask a question about the vehicles available to each household to create statistics about vehicle access. Vehicle data help:

  • Plan and fund improvements to road and highway infrastructure.
  • Develop transportation plans and services.
  • Understand how people are traveling in the course of a normal day.
  • Evaluate pollution and access to transportation in emergencies.

Your privacy concerns

We use your confidential survey answers to create statistics like those in the results below and in the full tables that contain all the data—no one is able to figure out your survey answers from the statistics we produce. The Census Bureau is legally bound to strict confidentiality requirements. Individual records are not shared with anyone, including federal agencies and law enforcement entities. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents' answers with anyone—not the IRS, not the FBI, not the CIA, and not with any other government agency.
