    • descript:
      • abstract: This dataset contains the following measures: Type of Transportation to Work.
      • Important: Taking public transportation, carpooling, walking, and bicycling to work can have environmental, economic, and personal health benefits. Walking, bicycling, and public transportation promote regular physical activity, reduce traffic congestion, and decrease air pollution from cars. Most U.S. workers — 86% in 2013 — commute by car, while the remainder use other forms of transportation such as bus, rail, and active transportation (biking and walking).

      • 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: 1) This dataset only captures commute to work, and does not capture the distance or duration of the trip. 2) Individual preference and economics also influences commute choices, not just community design. 3) Commuting by taxicab or other means of transport not identified in ACS is not included in this indicator. 4) While the ACS provides population, demographic and housing unit estimates, the Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program produces and disseminates the official estimates of the population for the nation, states, counties, cities, and towns. 5) Data are based on a sample and are subject to sampling variability. 6) The 2008 ACS data generally reflect the November 2007 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) definitions of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas. In certain instances the names, codes, and boundaries of the principal cities shown in the ACS tables may differ from the OMB definitions due to differences in the effective dates of the geographic entities. 7) Estimates of urban and rural population, housing units, and characteristics reflect boundaries of urban areas defined based on Census 2000 data. Boundaries for urban areas have not been updated since Census 2000. As a result, data for urban and rural areas from the ACS do not necessarily reflect the results of ongoing urbanization.
      • Standards:
      • ReportingProtocols:
        • supplinf: This indicator should be used to understand the use of different commute options at different geographic scales: census tract, county, and state. It should be understood in the context of public health challenges of physical inactivity, obesity, diabetes, and respiratory illnesses such as asthma. This indicator can be used to identify communities that have more walking, bicycling, and public transportation trips that can serve as an example to model policies and provisions to promote active and public transportation. Alternately this indicator can be used to identify communities with poor infrastructure and lacking policies that support active or public transportation. Communities can use this indicator to advocate for resources or behavior change to improve rates of walking, bicycling, and public transit use.

      • 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.
