Commuting Flows

Component ID: #ti1325814112

In addition to publically available ACS tables relating to commuting, the U.S. Census Bureau generates data products with the residence/workplace relationship or an origin-destination combination. Commuting flows are created from home (place of residence) to work (primary place of work). The information noting where people work by residence-based and workplace-based are prepared in reoccurring data product releases or “commuting flow.”

Commuting patterns revealed through commuting flows uncovers the shape and contours of metropolitan (metro) and micropolitan (micro) statistical areas.

Although not included among standard ACS data products, commuting origin-destination flow estimates are produced to support the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB’s) effort to delineate the nation’s metro, micro, and related statistical areas.
