This is a special tabulation similar to the CTPP, prepared by the Census Bureau using the decennial census long form data. It is paid for by a consortium of four Federal agencies, consisting of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

The EEO tabulation includes tables by residence, workplace, and by flow between home and work. However, there are many important differences between the CTPP and the EEO file. The EEO tabulation has very detailed information on occupations, education, and industry. The smallest geographic reporting is for places with populations of 50,000 or more.
The data set consists of 24 separate files. The files are delineated as follows:
· Residence tables: Files 1 through 7. The tabulations are presented for the civilian labor force 16 years and older
· Flow tables: Files 8 through 19 The tabulations are presented for a central worksite (county or place of 50,000 or more population) showing the flow to that worksite of workers from up to nine individual counties, places, or balance of counties. The data are shown for civilian workers 16 years and older
· Workplace tables: Files 20 through 24 The tabulations are presented for civilian workers 16 years and older.
Some differences between the CTPP and EEO file are:
1. The EE0 dataset contains much fewer geographic summary levels than CTPP. Moreover, geography is limited to counties, and places of population 50,000 or more.
2. The EEO dataset provides information only on civilian employment. Civilian Workers differs from Workers-at-Work in CTPP. CTPP 2000 includes workers in the armed-forces.
3. The EE0 tabulation is based only on the standard coding procedure. For CTPP 2000, two allocation procedures were applied to improve workplace geocoding to tract and block detail.
4. Only the TOP 9 geographies are shown in the flow tabulation for any geographic summary level. All the remaining flows are shown in a residual flow category.
5. In addition to rounding, a threshold of 50 is required for any flow to show the records in the table. Additionally if an individual cell value is less than 3, then it is suppressed.
We are experiencing delays in distributing Part 2 of CTPP 2000. While our
initial run of all states was completed and shipped to the vendors at the
end of October, we were not able to begin shipping CDs during November as
A minor modification (adding an introductory screen) is being made to the
CTPP Access Tool (CAT) software. The purpose is to direct users to either
Part 1 or Part 2, and to keep the Parts' files separate on the hard drive.
In addition, during the vendors' processing it was determined that changes
were needed to accommodate records with incomplete place of work geography.
These are cases where place of work tract, block group, or taz were not
completely filled during geocoding or place of work allocation. These
records will have the tract and block group fields filled with 9s, and the
taz code field filled with zeros. This occurs mostly in outlying, less
developed areas, but has to be handled in some manner by the CAT software.
Changes to handle these records are underway and we expect to receive a new
version of the software incorporating both types of changes around Dec. 15.
We will be trying to complete our testing of the new software by Dec. 19.
If any problems are found it is unlikely that we will have a final version
of the software before Christmas. Even if our testing goes well and no
major problems are found, the likelihood that we will be able to begin
distributing Part 2 this month is slight, and would only be a few states.
The majority of the Part 2 CDs will be distributed in January 2004.
The Part 2 delays also push out the availability of Part 3, the origin by
destination flow data. More significant changes will be required to the
software to handle the flow records, and while the vendor will begin this
work in early January, I expect it to continue into February. Therefore I
do not think Part 3 will be available until March 2004. I apologize for
these continuing delays and missed delivery dates. I know it creates
problems for you and your agencies. We will try to do what we can here to
minimize any further delays and get Parts 2 and 3 out in the next three
months. Thank you for your patience.
