How do people get to work in each state?



Data Notes

The data for this visualization comes from the American Community Survey which is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. I used the Census Bureau API to pull the 2016 5 year estimate for the commuting mode to work. Once I had gathered the data, I used Tableau to create this visualization.

I have included the API code I used to pull the data below. You will need a free API key to access the data. You can find out more at the Census Bureau’s Developer Page.,DP03_0019E,DP03_0020E,DP03_0021E,DP03_0022E,DP03_0023E,DP03_0024E&for=county:*&key=
