Working in Champaign County

From a new Census Bureau report on county of residence and county of workplace, here is where people come from to work in Champaign County. From the American Community Survey, 2006-2010. 

There's this explanation for what may seem like bizarre commutes: "Place-of-work data shows some workers who made atypical daily work trips (e.g., workers who lived in New York and worked in California). This result is attributable to people who worked during the reference week at a location that was different from their usual place of work, such as people away from home on business."

The American Community Survey is just that: a survey. So results are not as thorough as with the decennial census. You'll note that as the numbers get smaller, the margin of error increases. (In some cases, the margin of error is greater than the actual number that's listed.)

Here's where you can download the tables and other related data.

The Census is also a survey.
