The Modern Driver: A Waze Commuter Survey

A short while back we did an anonymous survey in the US of 1000 Waze users who, in order to be eligible for the survey, use a car for their primary means of transportation to and from work and are between the ages of 21 and 50.

We put together some of the demographics. From what we can gather, we can say the majority of Wazers in America comprise one or more of these basic traits:

  • Over the age of 30
  • Has a car
  • Definitely a Man or a Woman
  • Earns between $50,000 and $100,000 per year- maybe more
  • Probably lives in the East Coast, or Texas.
  • Lives no more than an hour from work

Don’t worry- we broke it down for you:

AgeDistribution_@2x

Gender_@2x

Annual_Household_Income_@2x

Where_They_Live_@2x

How_They_Work_@2x

Commute_Time_@2x

Notes on data collected:

  • We didn’t differentiate between the Southeast and “Texas”, a large part of the US that historically considers itself “the South”. Though it should just be “Texas”. It’s really a region unto itself.
  • I’m suspicious of the 50/50 Gender distribution, but then again, I’ll take it.
  • You can only imagine (seriously, I don’t believe half of it) what people have done, and have seen other people do, in their cars whilst stuck in traffic. Maybe one day I’ll drag that stuff out of the dataset. If you’re lucky.

Enjoy the infographic!
