Single Occupancy Work Commutes

Value: 88.0%
Measurement Period: 2011
Location: Allen County
Categories: Transportation / Personal Vehicle Travel Transportation / Roadway Congestion
What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the percentage of workers 16 and older who get to work by driving alone in a car, truck, or van.
Why this is important?  Driving alone to work consumes more fuel resources than other modes of transportation, such as carpooling, taking public transportation, biking, or walking. Driving alone also increases traffic congestion, especially in areas of great population density.
Technical Note:  Data are based on a sample and limited to the household population and exclude the population living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.
