|Mean Round-Trip Commuting|
|Source: 2000-03 12-month follow-up survey of Welfare-to-Work enrollees.
Note 1: The survey data have been weighted to be representative of all WtW enrollees in the respective sites. Survey item nonresponse may cause the sample sizes for specific variables to be smaller than those shown. Rounding may cause percentages to sum to something other than 100.
Note 2: The statistics presented in this table pertain to the principal job held at the time of the survey interview. If there were multiple jobs at that time, then the principal job was identified as the job on which the most hours were worked in a typical week and, in the event of a tie on hours worked, the job with the earliest starting date.
