number of people who owned a car in the uk
The line graph illustrates domestic car possession in terms of four distinct categories in the UK over a 36-year period.
It can be concluded from the graph that the number of British owning at least one car rose substantially over the period surveyed with the most significant increase can be seen in the two cars sector.
In 1971 people who have no car took up nearly half of the population while two-car owners accounted for only around 7%. Interestingly, 36 years later, the no car sector saw a dramatic fall to 25%, opposing to a sharp growth by 15% to 25% in the two car sector.
Regarding one car ownership, it experienced a period of stability at about 45% of the population overall while there was a gradual climb in the three or more cars category which reach the peak of nearly 7% at the end of the period surveyed.
