SELECTED CHARACTERISTICS OF COMMUTERS BY MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION
This report is one of a series of publications of final data for selected standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSA's), from the Travel-to-Work Supplement to the Annual Housing Survey (AHS), initiated in 1975 under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The AHS is conducted for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The data in this report are based on interviews of households in the Miami SMSA completed during the period from April 1975 through March 1976. Preliminary data from the Travel-to-Work Supplement, covering the first 4 months of the period, were previously published in Series P-23, No. 68, "Selected Characteristics of Travel to Work in 21 Metropolitan Areas: 1975."
Sex. A greater proportion of men than women drove alone to work in 1975, while women were more likely than men to carpool or use public transportation (table 3).
Household relationship. Female household heads were less likely to drive alone to work and more likely to use public transportation than male household heads in 1975 (table 3). Comparing working wives with female household heads, the data indicate that the latter were more likely to drive alone or use public transit, and less likely to carpool than working wives. Fifteen percent of the female household heads carpooled to work, compared with 31 percent of the working wives.
MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION TO WORK Of the approximately 543,000 workers living in the Miami SMSA in 1975, the survey results show that the majority (66 percent) usually drove to work alone (table 2). The proportion who carpooled to work (21 percent) was much larger than the proportion who used public transportation 17 percent), while about 4 percent walked, and 1 percent each used other means and worked at home. Workers who lived in the suburbs were more likely to drive alone to work (70 percent) than residents of the city (56 percent), while
Earnings. Comparing the three most widely used means of transportation, workers who drove alone to work had the highest median earnings ($9,233), followed by workers in carpools ($6,116) and users of public transit ($4,704).
The racial category "White and other races" is referred to as "White" in the text for convenience.
