Rural Virginia leads eastern US in cars per household
This map shows US counties, colored according to the average number of cars owned per household.
Several broad trends are visible, most of them not surprising to anyone. But it is surprising that so many counties in Virginia stand out, with higher rates than otherwise comparable counties in nearby eastern states. What's different about the Old Dominion, versus West Virginia or North Carolina?
The map is from Tumblr blog Vizual Statistix, which has a lot of interesting data visualizations. It's worth a read.
