# Average commute time of Americans

Each year since 2005, the US Census Bureau surveys about 3.5 million households with The American Community Survey (ACS). Data collected from the ACS have been crucial in government and policy decisions, helping to determine the allocation of federal and state funds each year. Data from the 2012 ACS is available in the `acs12`

dataset.

When given one argument, `t.test()`

tests whether the population mean of its input is different than 0. That is \(H_0: \mu_{diff} = 0\) and \(H_A: \mu_{diff} \ne 0\). It also provides a 95% confidence interval.
