Commuter Workforce Skills Study
In 2016, the Regional Commuter Workforce Skills Study was completed by the University of Mary Washington (UMW) Center for Business Research, which provides both an overview of the region’s workforce skills and also in-depth data for businesses interested in expanding or relocating to the Region.
Summary of Key Findings
- The estimated number of commuters is 61,639.
- More than half of all commuters estimate that it takes at least one hour to get to work each day.
- Commuters tend to have higher levels of education than non-commuters.
- More than half of all commuters work in the Targeted Industry Clusters for the Fredericksburg Region.
- Commuters have higher average income than non-commuters at every level of education.
- Commuters are much more likely to have military experience (active duty or National Guard) than non-commuters (28% versus 12%).
