Car use and car ownership iv

Project Number: 305

Project Leader: Roger Pyddoke

Research Question Corrected data on car ownership allows re-estimation of car use demand and car ownership functions previously estimated with incorrect data delivered from Statistics Sweden (VTI rapport 653). The previous data did not distinguish privately owned cars and cars owned by an enskild firma. The results from these earlier estimations deviate significantly from results obtained from household expenditure data. Our hypothesis is that the above correction of data may have significant effects on estimation results. The purpose for this application is to estimate car ownership models for individuals and families based with register data. The primary question is to which extent car ownership propensities differ between densely populated areas and rural areas.
