What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of workers aged 16 years and over who get to work by driving alone in a car, truck, or van.
Why this is important: 
Driving alone to work consumes more fuel and resources than other modes of transportation, such as carpooling, public transportation, biking and walking. Driving alone also increases traffic congestion, especially in areas of greater population density.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
