NEW YORK___ The U.S. Census Bureau released the report “Commuting Patterns of Older Workers in the United States: 2013-2017” that describes commuting patterns of older workers in the United States based on data from the five-year 2013-2017 American Community Survey (ACS).
Older workers are a diverse group whose commuting patterns vary by age, commuting mode, geography, disability status, earnings, and race and Hispanic origin. Planners and policymakers can accommodate the needs of this growing share of the working population by understanding their commuting behavior and the differences from that of younger workers.
Detailed tabulations, related information and historical data are available on the Commuting (Journey to Work) page. For more information on the older population, visit the Older Population and Age webpage.
