These commuting products, based on statistics from the American Community Survey, examine U.S. residents traveling across county and state lines to work. In addition, the products present U.S. workers who have commutes of 60 minutes or longer and workers who have "megacommutes" of at least 90 minutes and 50 miles. Statistics will also be available for every county in the U.S. that show the number of workers that commute into or out of the county and which counties those commuters travel to and from. A new infographic about home-based workers will also be released, providing a snapshot of people working from home at least one day per week.
