I understand that the trip home often takes longer because there's more
congestion in the pm (because there are more non-work trips being made
during pm rush hour than during am rush hour).

I need to get more
information on the Journey to Work questions. Can
help me understand why only the one-way home-to-work trip is asked for?
not the return trip? Is it correct to double the Census travel times
generalize "the average worker spends 51 minutes a day commuting?" I

aggregated the data to our geographies and to a more manageable number

companies, and their ad agency and advertiser clients are very
commuting info. If you are interested, you can see the application at
