Census Issues Commuting Study

From a newly released study by the US Census, which categorizes a "long commute" as longer than 60 minutes:
Among U.S. workers who did not work at home, 8.1 percent had commutes of 60 minutes or longer in 2011. An estimated 61.1 percent of workers with “long commutes” drove to work alone, compared with 79.9 percent for all workers who did not work at home. New York shows the highest rate of “long commutes” at 16.2 percent, followed by Maryland and New Jersey at 14.8 and 14.6 percent, respectively. The District of Columbia has the highest rate of out-of-state commuters among its resident workers at 25.2 percent, followed by Maryland at 18.3 percent. Among all people who work in the District of Columbia, 72.4 percent live outside the District of Columbia.
