(PRWEB UK) 25 September 2013
Do accountants have a hankering for a grey motor? Do tree surgeons gravitate to green cars? Are florists more colourful drivers? Do market traders - like Del Boy - really go for yellow when it comes to transport choice?
Tiger.co.uk, the car insurance comparison site, has produced an analysis that looks at these questions and more. The study, produced using over 300,000 car insurance quotes, produces a correlation between occupation and car colour. Looking at twelve different car colours and hundreds of job types, the research has been summarised in a new infographic.
Commenting on this, Tiger.co.uk's Andrew Goulborn explained how the results were produced: "Rather than just looking at the volumes of data we looked at the variances within it. So what we ended up with was a set of data that shows the increased likelihood of people in a specific occupation driving a specific colour of car. We excluded any car colours and occupations where the sample size was too small to be statistically valid.
What we found was conclusive proof that accountants are 62% more likely to drive grey cars than the average person; that florists are a whopping 176% more likely to pick an orange car; that tree surgeons and farmers like to go green; and, perhaps most surprisingly, that market traders are some 153% more likely to choose a yellow set of wheels - just like the Trotters!"
