The CTPP data product based on 2006 – 2010 5-year American Community Survey (ACS) Data is designed to help transportation analysts and planners understand where people are commuting to and from, and how they get there. The information is organized by where workers live, where they work, and by the flow between those places. The CTPP Data Access Software is a powerful tool to access the nearly 350 gigs of data provided by the Census Bureau. The Data set consists of almost 200 residence based tables, 115 workplace based tables and 39 flow tables (Home to work) for over 325,000 geographies.
WATS uses this data to understand commute trends and the future needs of our region's transportation system. Look forward to future posts and analysis on this data!
