JOURNEY TO WORK IN THE UNITED STATES AND ITS MAJOR METROPOLITAN AREAS -- 1960 - 2000

This report tracks trends in demographics, worker characteristics and journey-to-work commute in the United States and its large Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). The report is based on data from the decennial census published by the U.S. Census Bureau. Chapters 1 and 2 look at the national trends in terms of population and workforce growth, the change in household structure, and outline some regional and state trends. Chapter 3 examines the demographics of the changes in relation to travel, focusing on the trends within the 49 metropolitan areas (not including San Juan, Puerto Rico) that have over 1,000,000 people in residence as reported in the 2000 Census. Chapter 4 examines the changes in place of work, residence location, and travel time. Chapter 5 looks at means of transportation and Chapter 6 looks at vehicle availability. The profile section includes a map of each of the 49 MSAs followed by a detailed profile sheet.
