The 2015 GLA report, Health Impact of Cars in London, includes a figure detailing household car ownership by household income, sourced from the London Travel Demand Survey undertaken in 2013-14. Could you provide an updated table of the most recent similar figures available from this survey, including a further breakdown by London borough?

Summary data is available from the London Travel Demand Survey for 2019. Data for 2020 and 2021 were collected on a more limited basis because of Coronavirus restrictions on fieldwork and are not statistically comparable with previous data. Data is provided in the attached table for car ownership and income at GLA level and car ownership by borough. Sample size limitations mean that it is not possible to cross-tabulate income groups against boroughs for a single year and data would need to be aggregated across the three most recent years (2017-2019).
