Census Bureau CTPP Web Training - December 2 and 5, 2008

The Census Bureau is offering a training session that will review different ways to access ACS data from the Census Bureau webpage. On December 9, the Census Bureau will release the first 3-year tabulation (2005 through 2007) from the American Community Survey. Data for areas reaching a population threshold of 20,000 will be released. Previous ACS results were limited to areas that reached a population threshold of 65,000, so many more counties and cities will be included in this release. The geographic units in which you are likely to be most interested in are: County, Place (cities and Census-designated Places), and PUMA. Approximately 60% of counties in the U.S. will be included. Please read Full Story for more information.

Training dates:

  • December 2- 1:00-2:30 p.m.
  • December 5- 1:00-2:30 p.m.

Census TAZ Update News

Earlier this week the AASHTO CTPP Oversight Board met and reached an agreement on traffic analysis zones (TAZs) for the American Community Suvey (ACS). MPOs and states wishing to create TAZs will be able to do so during the summer of 2011. This is a change from the previous schedule (spring of 2009) and now gives everyone more time along with the benefit of knowing what the block level 2010 population counts will be when making TAZs. Stay tuned for more details.
