Parking Citation Data: a public records request was made to the City of Seattle for all available data on parking citations. These data were only available for two years—2016 and 2017. We geolocated each citation by Census Tract, then calculated the average number of citations occurring for both years combined.

Off-Street Parking Lots & Garages Data: The City of Seattle posts a datafile with the location and capacity of all parking lots and garages in the city. This data file is periodically updated on the city’s Open Data portal. Data downloaded from: https://data-seattlecitygis.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/8e52dfde6d5d45948f7a90654c8d50cd_0/data

Land Use (Zoning) Data: The City of Seattle provided land use shapefiles for each year of our study. We then created aggregate categories by Census Tract that calculates land use by commercial, residential, industrial, mixed-use, and other land uses—by year.

King County Transit Stops/Sq Mile Data: King County Transit provided the research team with shapefiles that mark each public transit stop. We then aggregated these data to a number of stops per square mile calculation using ArcGIS.
