The way to work will always take an hour
South American researchers released a study, according to which people are willing to spend on the way to work should not exceed 1 hour, regardless of the transport they didn't move. For specific data, researchers used the unknown data with mobile phones.
Experts Massachusetts scientific-technical Institute conducted its own survey, with the aim to define how much time a modern person spends on the way to work. With all this, the scientists decided not to rely on data from sample surveys, the accuracy of which leaves much to be desired, and to apply these mobile phones. Data were collected in 4 world cities: Boston in the USA, Abidjan in Cote d'ivoire, Lisbon in Portugal and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
Researchers have approximately the same picture: the inhabitants of data of large cities spend on the way to work from 50 to 70 minutes a day. This data does not have a big impact even strong social, financial and cultural differences inherent in these cities.
The research data published in the journal PLoS ONE declare that in spite of used vehicles and the distance to work, people are ready to spend on this path no more hours of your own time. If people will day by day to spend on the way to work over this time, in opinion of researchers, he will try or to change jobs, or habitat. With the exception of motorists who are willing to spend on the road longer, remaining free from public transport.
In 1994, the Italian physicist Cesare Marchetti submitted that since the stone age people spend on the way to work about an hour, whatever the distance and means of transport. Article experts Massachusetts scientific and technical Institute - the next proof of this doctrine.
