4 Todays Agenda -- 3 ACTs Act 3 Bringing it all together Resources What you need to know? Epilogue Qs and As Act Census Geography Issues CTPP History/Basics Act 2 American Community Survey
5 Its Only a Short Form Questionnaire 7 Questions Name Sex Age Relationship Hispanic Origin Race Owner/Renter ACT 1 Census 2010 April 1, Hiring field workers
8 ACT 1 Geography Programs and Issues Geography Programs LUCA PSAP Tiger Files Key Geographic Issues That Will Affect Transportation Planning Boundaries Size of MPOs Others
9 Geographic Programs Context Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) School District Review Program (SDRP) Tribal Statistical Areas Program (TSAP) Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP) Urbanized Area UZA definitions
10 LUCA Local Update of Census Addresses Address Definition Program for Local Governments Updates Master Address File (MAF) and Tiger geographic data base Multi-year program-started in 2007 Winter 2009/2010 Appeals Office Open
11 PSAP Participant Statistical Areas Program Program to define Tracts and Block Groups Critical to MPOs and States Currently in the Field Are your MPO participating? What are they experiencing?
12 Draft Schedule as of February Contacts: Start with Ed Christopher or Elaine Murakami (FHWA) Census Bureau Geographic Standards and Criteria Branch at ,
13 TIGER Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing system Census Bureau digital mapping database For Census important, for Other not so Gone through major Update Tiger 2008 has issues
14 Geography Issues -- Closer to Home Boundaries Urbanized Boundary Definitions Whats a MPO? Others?
15 Boundaries Census Defined Urban Area (UA) Adjusted Urbanized Area (UZA) Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA)
16 Urbanized Area Definitions density based, automated process, identified urban clusters (2,500 pop), ignored place boundaries and built from Census Blocks 2010 still in internal discussions Investigating use of place of work data via ACS, reviewing land use covers and digital elevation maps and satellite imagery, thinking about using household densities and building from Census Tracts. Look for criteria for defining urbanized areas and clusters in Fall 2009 in Federal Register New
17 Something to think about... Building from Blocks Building from Tracts Latest Info
18 100K - Threshold Grandfathering 200K - Project Selection Authority 1 Million+ Special Funding and Requirements NARC - Status Quo AASHTO - Somewhat Vague FHWA - Whats an MPO?
19 ACT 1 CTPP Basics and History You may have seen the next 5 or 6 slides but we need to cover some basics and history.
20 Special Tabulations 1960 OMB Journey-to-Work Tables 1970 and 1980 Urban Transportation Planning Package (UTPP) 1990 and 2000 Census Transportation Planning Package (CTPP) At ResidenceAt Workplace Flows between Home and Work
21 What is the CTPP 2000? The Census Transportation Planning Package is a set of special tabulations from the long form of the decennial census designed by transportation planners for transportation planners It summarizes the data At ResidenceAt Workplace Flows between Home and Work
22 Long Form Where does the data come from?
23 For the U.S. as a whole, about one (1) in six (6) households received the Long Form questionnaire Who got the Long Form? 17%
24 Key Long Form questions Place of Work Means of Transportation to Work Carpool Occupancy to Work Departure Time for Work Travel Time to Work Vehicles Available
25 Tabulations at Residence Tabulations at Workplace Flows between Home and Work Part 1Part 2 Part 3 What are the CTPP 2000 Products?
Tables of Residents Based Data 68 Tables of Work Place Data 14 Tables of Flow Data Types of CTPP Data Person/Workers Worker Status Age, Sex, Race, Hispanic Origin, Disability Household Income Nos. Vehicles Available Size Number Workers Journey-to-Work Work Location and Mode Departure and Travel Time Arrival Time
27 Types of Geography
28 The past Transportation data packages were unique because of the summary levels, geography, universes and data tables. The packages have always been designed by transportation planners for transportation planners Data Summary Levels Why earlier packages special
29 How has data been used Descriptive Analysis and Reporting Survey Support Model Development Model Calibration Special Studies
30 Where do you get CTPP 2000 Data? ASCII Files
31 https://www.bts.gov/pdc w/Extraction Software Where do you get CTPP 2000 Data?
32 Self Instructional CD Provides all the basics to understand, use and work with the CTPP 2000 data for transportation planning Is there some training? for a FREE copy of the GUIDEBOOK
33 Past Journey to Work data Buyers/UsersDirect CostTables 1960OMB??? $0.6 M $2.0 M $2.5 M $3.0 M AASHTO Consolidated Purchase $5.9 Million All States and MPOs
34 Replacement of the Long Form Continuous Survey Methodology Conducted Monthly Produces characteristics, not population counts ACT 2 American Community Survey
35 ACS Facts 250,000 Households sampled per month About 1 in 40 Households sampled per year Same transportation questions as 2000 Long Form Decennial Long Form is History Kaput, Nada, Defunct, Gone!
36 Decennial Sample 1:6 nationwide April 1, 2000
37 ACS continuous sample Yr 1
38 ACS continuous sample Yr 2
39 ACS continuous sample Yr 3
40 ACS continuous sample Yr 4
41 ACS continuous sample Yr 5
42 ACS continuous sample Yrs 1-5
43 ACS/Decennial Samples ACS after 5 years Old Long Form Smaller sample mean GREATER error
44 How does the ACS work? Three Methods of Data Collection 1. Mail Self-administered mail-out/mail-back 2. Telephone Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) 3. Personal Visits Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI ) 1:3
45 Tract and Block Group 5-year Period 20, year Period 65,000+Annual Data for the Previous Year Released in: Population Size of Area Data Type ACS Data Release Timeline
46 ACS Standard Tables Standard Tabs include some New tables previously only in CTPP, eg place of work - Mode to work by travel time - Mode to work by time leaving home - Household size by no of vehicles - Household size by no of workers Some of what the ACS provides
47 Is it 1 or 3 or 5? Population < 20,000 5-year estimates only Population >= 20,000 and < 65,000 3-year estimates 5-year estimates Population >= 65,000 1-year estimates 3-year estimates 5-year estimates Users will have to choose which data to use What does this mean?
48 Sample Error is larger because the number of census forms collected each year are smaller. Changes of plus or minus 2% may be due to Sample Error and do not reflect measurable change. Understanding Sample Error
49 Percent Poverty for Families – Sevier County, TN What does the ACS data look like?
50 Percent of Population 5 Years and Older who Speak Spanish at Home - Lake County, IL
51 Statistical Significance Tests Standard Error = Margin of Error / 1.65 But what about MOEs for 2000 data? 90% Confidence Comparing ACS to 2000 Data

60 C ensus T ransportation P lanning P roducts The CTPP embodies a collection of Census Data used for Transportation Planning. With changing data needs and the ACS, there will be a variety of different products useful for transportation planning emanating from Census Data. There will be Special Tabulations, Standard Tables and even Value Added-products. The CTPP captures all of these. Think of CTPP as a place to look for Census Data products to help with your Transportation needs Enter the ACS era…

65 3-year Data Product Hits Snag Disclosure Review Board All Tables rounded like 2000 No thresholds on Univariate Mode tables Cell thresholds on all Mode by X tables Tables with failing cells suppressed Includes all Resident and Workplace tables Worker flows by Total Workers and Flows by Mode  no thresholds
66 3-year Data Product Update 1. Developing tables with 2006, 2007 and 2008 data, released in Summer 2010 (?) 2. Working to get table request to Census DRB for review by April Tables heavily collapsed 4. Going after FLOW tables regardless Current Status
67 5-year Data Product Likely to be all synthetic Hinges on some key research X NCHRP Proposed Problem Statement PROBLEM Number: 2010 B-23 ($500K) PROBLEM TITLE: Identifying Credible Alternatives for Producing 5-year CTPP Data Products from the ACS
68 TAZs (Traffic Analysis Zones) What we were planning a year ago Will there be Census TAZS?
69 Where we are at today? Developed in late 2008 and early 2009 Summer 2011 All zones would nest within each larger zones and Counties GIS approach similar to (PSAP) equivalency process Funded under Consolidated Purchase But why the Change?

82 ACS Data Profiles
83 Data Changes The American Community Survey (ACS) replaced the Long Form. It is the ACS where we get all the data used for transportation planning CTPP Developments CTPP--Stands for Census Transportation Planning Products and there is a whole group of people looking out for the best interest of the transportation community Potential Changes Due to 2010 Census In April of 2010 there will be population count (Census). Results will be out at the end of the year and congressional seats will change ACT 3 Take Aways
84 Boundary Implications Remember: UZA Boundary setting criteria will be out in Fall FHWA plans are uncertain? Traffic Analysis Zones TAZs will not be developed until of summer of 2011 Other Data Products/New Specifics on ACS transportation data products are still unfolding ACT 3 Take Aways
