So… It’s time to head to work... How long does it take someone to get to work anyway?

We surveyed 100 r a n d o m employees :

Each group member surveyed individuals around their homes and places of work to ensure that the sample was selected over the widest demographic possible. Due to the impersonal nature of our question, it was not difficult to get answers, as people are more willing to share basic information.

Excel Sheet

Histogram -Chart shows the data visually and most frequent time traveled. Skewed – Right Distribution

Polygon * Chart shows how frequent each time was traveled. ** Midpoint of each frequency is on the X Axis 37 people avg 27 min drive time

Ogive -Chart shows a cumulative frequency polygon. Ogive holds a running total of frequencies. Cumulative

Conclusion of Survey Over 11 days a YEAR are spent on travel to work one way Over 11 days a YEAR are spent on travel to work one way That works out to 3 weeks spent traveling both to and from work total That works out to 3 weeks spent traveling both to and from work total The sample taken did not result in a bell shaped curve due to the fact that there wasn’t an opportunity for normal distribution. On average, people tend to work close to home, because of this, the median and mode are a lower number than the mean. However if this survey was done over a larger demographic, a bell shaped curve would have been produced.
