This report includes sample tables and figures that provide readers with a better understanding of the commuting patterns for each Wyoming county, both in the most recent quarter for which data are available (2015Q4) and historically.
The tables and figures presented in this report provide just a sample of R&P’s innovative research capabilities. Commuting analysis has been or could be produced for a variety of sets of workers and job seekers, such as:

Chapter 5: Commuting Impacts on Health Care
This chapter compares and contrasts
the demographics of selected health care
professions and the commuting behavior of
the people who work in those professions.
Performing such an analysis serves two
important functions: 1) it provides a
description of health care professional
employment characteristics and associated
behaviors, and 2) it demonstrates Research
& Planning’s (R&P) ability to synthesize
data from several sources to provide a
robust description of worker behavior.

Research & Planning (R&P) contracted with the Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in 2007 to study Laramie County worker commuting flows. The project’s purpose was to determine not only the amount of commuting into and out of Laramie County, but also the sources and destinations of commuters. Additionally, R&P obtained geographic information for Colorado residents who commute into Wyoming for work. MPO intends to use the information and analysis presented in this report to determine the feasibility of a commuter bus service along the Front Range to transport those who live in Colorado and work in Laramie County to their jobs in a more efficient manner.
To learn more about where the state’s labor force lives and works, the Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Employment developed a commuting pattern data model, in cooperation with the Wyoming Workforce Development Council. This 12-page publication gives examples of R&P commuting pattern data that can be used by business owners, policy makers, economic developers, and others. These findings have many uses, such as identifying sources of labor, housing needs, or pointing to changing infrastructure needs.

From the executive summary:
The data generated from the Wyoming Worker Commuting Patterns Study identify relationships between where people choose to live and where they choose to work, as evidenced by employer/employee transactions. As Wyoming’s economic growth continues, worker commuting will likely increase and it may well be that a portion of demand for labor in one county can be met by strategically engaging residents from other counties and states.
