2009-2013 5-Year American Community Survey Commuting (ACS) Flows
The ACS Survey is conducted across the country every year and the data is reported as a five year rolling average. Commuting (Journey to Work) refers to a worker’s travel from home to work. Place of work refers to the geographic location of the worker’s job. Work at home refers to a worker who does not commute to a different geographic area from work, meaning their place of work is their home. Daytime population refers to the estimated number of people who are residing and working in an area during the “daytime” working hours.
For 2009 -2013 the top six commuting for work destinations from Bannock County are:
Bannock County 31, 829
Bingham County 1,277
Bonneville County 877
Power County 804
Butte County 360
Caribou County 316
This is approximately the same number of commuters as in the 2007 – 2011 ACS data.
