Share of household expenditure on transport services across countries (% of total spending, 2008)
Whilst households in more economically developed countries are expected spend more on transport, it is also appears that other factors, such as that the size of the country, population density and general distribution of population are relevant, as is the usage of public transport.
The share of household expenditure on transport includes public transport (transport by train, bus, taxi, ferries and aircraft), operation of private vehicles and purchase of vehicles.
Total expenditure is defined as total private consumption in the National Account.
