NOTES: Data are based on survey results. The Bureau of Labor Statistics uses the term "consumer unit" rather than "household." There are an average of 2.5 persons in each consumer unit, which is defined as members of a household related by blood, marriage, adoption, or other legal arrangement; a single person living alone or sharing a household with another but who is financially independent; or two or more persons living together who share responsibility for at least two-thirds of major types of expenses-food, housing, and other expenses.
Other transportation includes both local transit, such as bus and taxi travel, and long-distance travel, such as airplane trips.
