Key Bridge Users Were Part of Baltimore’s Blue-Collar World, Census Bureau Finds

In the wake of the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, U.S. Census Bureau analysts reviewed the data to develop a socioeconomic profile of those who crisscrossed it on a daily basis.

They found that users of the bridge were more likely to:

• Get up earlier in the morning and have longer commutes.

• Hold a high school degree as their highest educational attainment.

• Earn between $50,000 and $64,999 annually.
