NOTES: Data are based on survey results. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses the term consumer unit rather than household. BLS defines a consumer unit as 1) members of a household related by blood, marriage, adoption, or other legal arrangement; 2) a person living alone; sharing a household with others; rooming in a private home, lodging, or in permanent living quarters in a hotel or motel but who is financially independent; or 3) two or more persons living together and making joint expenditure decisions.

Other transportation includes both local transit (e.g., bus and taxi travel) and long-distance travel (e.g., airplane trips).

Current dollar amounts (see table 6-1b) were converted to chained 2000 dollars by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics to eliminate the effects of inflation over time.
