This study examines the patterns of energy consumption for journeys-to-work in a metropolitan area and demonstrates the relationship between these patterns and urban structure. The study also identifies population and geographic variables that affect energy use. Cartographic and statistical analyses are performed on census data relating to distances of work trips and choice of mode in the Chicago, Illinois, area. A review of the literature on the related studies is given. Explanations of the mapping and regression techniques are provided, along with an analysis of the study results.
