There was an error in the calculation of "Workers per car, truck, or van" in Subject Table S0801 for 2005 through 2008 ACS. Total number of workers was used for the numerator instead of total number of workers using car, truck, or van. The correct value can be calculated taking the total number of workers for car, truck, or van in Detailed Table B08006 or C08006 and dividing by the total aggregate number of vehicles (car, truck, or van) used in commuting in Detailed Table B08015. Table 1 shows the number of workers per car, truck, or van for the U.S. for the years affected.
