The Typical American and Her Wheels

What can the American Community Survey (ACS) tell us about the typical American?  Well, Americans use cars a lot:
  • Jennifer, our typical American, and her husband have 2 or more vehicles (57.3%).
  • Like 76.1% of workers 16 years and older, Jennifer drives to work alone.
  • Her average commuting time to work is 25.4 minutes.
