Who Has A Worse Commute? You Or Your Highland Neighbors?

I-80_Eastshore_Fwy

 

 

Commuting is an important but crappy part of life. It affects all sorts of things including your health and happiness (Gallup). You may not like it, but you have to get to work somehow. Commute times have correlations with enjoyment, neck and back pain, cholestorerol, feeling well rested, obesity and much more! How’s your neck feeling right about now?

 

The US Census collects commute time data when it does its poll every ten years. You can find this data and so much more broken down into small chunks (most of the time to the neighborhood level or smaller) on City-Data.com! Have you ever wondered how your commute compares to your neighbors? Highlands residents commute for about 24 min on average. How does yours compare to the average?

 

If your commute longer than your neighborhood average, remember that happyiness isn’t determined just on length but also depends on how you commute. People who walk 15 minutes to work are happier than people who drive 15 minutes to work. My commute is only 7 minutes by car or I can bike there in 15 minutes, but hey, sometimes you just want to do get out there and do something! I’m not about to brave the cold to bike to work, but on a beautiful morning, it’s a great way to start the day.
