Herkimer County Households Without a Vehicle Available and Elderly Heads of Households

The map below comes from the 2013 ACS Five Year Estimates for Herkimer County and shows the block groups in which at least 10% or more of the households have no vehicle available. In addition, the hatched areas identify those same areas where 40% of more of these households lacking a vehicle are headed by someone age 65 or older.

So not only are the hatched areas block groups where a substantial part of the population lacks a vehicle, those that DO lack transportation are often elderly.

Just an example of what is out there in the five year estimates if you look hard enough ! For a closer look click the map below !
