It’s no surprise that Dallas County attracts commuters, with beautiful homes like this one at 19 Panorama Trail in Denton County within easy driving range.

Dallas County, Texas, has among the highest number of commuters coming from another county in the nation, the U.S. Census Bureau reported in new estimates released from the American Community Survey.

Among workers in Dallas County, 507,397 live outside the county, according to 2006-2010 estimates from the American Community Survey. For example, 142,514 workers commute in from Tarrant County, 142,042 from Collin County and 108,740 from Denton County. The first two were not significantly different from each other.

Meanwhile, 173,836 residents of Dallas County leave the county for work, with 61,507 going to Tarrant County, 60,107 to Collin County and 19,134 to Denton County. The first two were not significantly different from each other.

“It is well known that Dallas County draws a lot of commuters to work. The detailed information in the American Community Survey tells us where Dallas County workers are coming from, where its residents work, and how its commuting patterns compare to those of other large counties,” said Brian McKenzie, a Census Bureau statistician who studies commuting. “This information shapes our understanding of the boundaries of local and regional economies, as people and goods move across the nation’s transportation networks.”

Robert Wilonsky, writing for the Transportation Blog for the Dallas Morning News, also points out a few other interesting commuting statistics from the report: “In 2011, 2.8 percent of all workers in Dallas County used public transportation — excluding taxicab — to get to their job, compared with 5.0 percent in the nation as a whole.” And: “About 0.2 percent of all workers in the county biked to work in 2011, compared with 0.6 percent nationally.” Click here to read Wilonsky’s post.
