Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the median one way commute time in minutes taken to travel to work, in each Australian capital city from the year 2013.
When compared to the average amount of time that people spend per week commuting to and from work the numbers may vary, this is due to the fact that in this data set, the median has been used. This is because this measurement gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by figures that lie far outside of the regular data range. The median value is the middle time in minutes in a series of times, where half of the times are of lower value and half are of higher value.
The data shows that the city with the longest median travel time to work is in Sydney, at 39 minutes. The city with the shortest travel time to work is Hobart, at 22 minutes.
