Data item: Average travel time to work for workers 16 years and over not working at home, 2006-2010

Source: U. S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey, 5-Year Estimates. Updated every year.


Travel time to work refers to the total number of minutes that it usually took the person to get from home to work each day during the reference week. The elapsed time includes time spent waiting for public transportation, picking up passengers in carpools, and time spent in other activities related to getting to work.

Data were tabulated for workers 16 years old and over--that is, members of the Armed Forces and civilians who were at work during the reference week--who reported that they worked outside their home.

Mean travel time to work is obtained by dividing the total number of minutes by the number of workers 16 years old and over who did not work at home. Mean travel time to work is rounded to the nearest tenth of a minute.

Scope and Methodology:
