Polk County Transportation & Commute Statistics
The American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimates on commuters' means of transportation to work in Polk County each year. This data is limited to workers 16 years and older in Polk County, and is collected based on the workers' residences rather than the locations of their jobs.
Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. This report uses ACS 5-year estimates for Polk County transportation data, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.
