Estimates about Journey to Work from the 2005 ACS, C2SS, and Census 2000

Michelle Jiles


This report compares national distributions based on data from the 2005 American Community Survey (ACS) with those based on data from two other Census Bureau data sources for four items: means of transportation to work, departure time from home to work, travel time to work, and place of work (worked in area of residence or not). This report compares the 2005 ACS with estimates based on the Census 2000 and Census 2000 Supplementary Survey (C2SS). It then notes variations that are both statistically and substantially different, and for those found, offers possible explanations. For all analyses the universe is restricted to those 16 and over who worked at all during the reference week. All estimates are based on published data.
