      • abstract: This dataset contains the following measures: commute time.
      • Important: Americans spend considerable time traveling to and from work. In 2013, 86% of American workers commuted by car, while the remainder used other forms of transportation such as public and active (bicycling and walking) transportation. Time spent commuting is associated with several health outcomes, dependent on travel mode. Long commute time or duration can be the result of having long distances to travel, traveling at slow speeds (e.g., on highly congested roads), or a combination of the two.
      • Measures: Average one-way commute time (minutes) for workers 16 years and older for all travel modes
        • Derivation:
          • Numerator: Commute time for workers 16 years and older for all travel modes
          • Denominator: Total commute time for workers 16 years and older for all travel modes

      • Purpose
      • Use
      • DataSources: These data were obtained from the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network using their application programming interface (API); American Community Survey: https://www.census.gov/acs/www/
      • DataLimitations: Average commute time cannot be broken down by mode of transportation and therefore might mask trends. The categorical nature of the commute time data make finding the mean/median, 75th percentile, and 90th percentile difficult. The cutoffs for the measures are not exact. These measures do not capture transportation for non-work-related reasons and do not capture user preferences that can affect travel mode and duration of commute.
      • Standards:
      • ReportingProtocols:
        • supplinf: This indicator should be used to understand commute time using different modes of transportation. It should be understood in the context of public health challenges of physical inactivity, obesity, mental health, and traffic-related air pollution. This indicator can be used to identify communities that can serve as an example of model policies and provisions that promote active and public transportation. Alternately this indicator can be used to identify communities that lack adequate infrastructure or policies that support active or public transportation. Communities can use this indicator to advocate for resources, transportation infrastructure, and behavior change to increase walking, bicycling, and public transportation use among commuters.

      • Constraints:
        • Access: Public Health Professionals may only access secure Utah Tracking Network data through Secure IBIS-PH or in any other way after submitting a complete application as contained in the document Third Party Application for Access to Secure IBIS-PH for Public Health Professionals. Similarly, researchers must submit a complete application as contained in the document Third Party Application for Access to Secure IBIS-PH for Research Projects. The Scientific Review Board (SRB) does not serve as an Institutional Review Board (IRB). Applications requiring an IRB must submit for IRB approval separately. The applications can be submitted concurrently, but the SRB will not grant data access until they have received proof that the IRB has approved the research project. The SRB may conditionally approve access to Secure IBIS-PH pending IRB approval. The SRB ensures that the research proposal meets all of the data owner(s)’s requirements.
