Hi, I have a short question about the variable TRANTIME. I would greatly appreciate your help! I am currently working with the American Community Survey, only with recent years (2015-2018).
The matter is simple. I am using the variable “trantime”, which I understand, refers to the minutes that it takes for the respondent to get from home to work. I further understand it is defined for people who report being employed. My doubt is about the value “0” in trantime. I see that all workers who reported they work from home (tranwork=70), are assigned 0 in trantime, which, of course, makes sense. Yet, I also see that the number of people with a value of 0 in trantime is larger than the number of workers who reported they work from home. Perhaps you could clarify who are the workers (empstat=1) who show up as having 0 minutes in trantime, besides those who work from home? I just would like to be clear about what 0 means in this variable.
Thank you so much for your time,
