Tidbit Tuesday | How do men and women in Philadelphia get to work?
October 15, 2013
Every Tuesday, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities (MOTU) posts a map or graphic that tells a story about transportation or utilities in the City of Brotherly Love.
This week we combed through some 2012 American Community Survey data (the ACS’ website is currently down due to the government shutdown, we actually pulled the data a month ago) to see if men and women use different modes to commute to work at different rates. This week we illustrated how men and women drive, carpool, and use public transit at different rates. Next week we will publish a follow-up graphic about other modes, including walking, biking, and working from home! Note, the below graphic’s scale is based on a 100% maximum.
