What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the average daily travel time to work in minutes for workers 16 years of age and older.
Why this is important: 
Lengthy commutes cut into workers' free time and can contribute to health problems such as headaches, anxiety, and increased blood pressure. Longer commutes require workers to consume more fuel which is both expensive for workers and damaging to the environment.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
