Distribution of Part 2 from CTPP 2000 (data by place of work) has begun. As
we did for Part 1, we are distributing files only to the project sponsors,
the state Departments of Transportation and local Metropolitan Planning
Organizations, and asking them to review the data and software. After the
results of the review are in, we will begin production and distribution of
large volumes of the Part 2 CDs.
ASCII data sets for Part 2 were sent out during the preceding two weeks to
agencies who received ASCII files from us during the Part 1 distribution.
These shipments should have all been delivered by now, so if you are
expecting ASCII datasets but don't have them yet please let us know.
Shipments of the CDs with the browsing and retrieval software on them
(along with the data) began late this week. If you are a State DOT or an
MPO in any of the states listed below, we expect that you will receive your
CDs the week beginning Feb. 2. Since the Part 2 files are smaller than Part
1 we are bundling multiple states on most of the Part 2 discs. We shipped
six different CDs containing 15 states this week, bundled as follows:
CA/NV, NY/NJ, MI/IN, OH/KY, GA/SC/TN, ID/OR/UT/WA. We will continue sending
discs out next week and think there is a good chance we will have them all
in the mail by Feb. 6.
Distribution of the final version of the Part 1 data is expected to begin
in late February or early March. Additional details will be posted on this
listserve as they become available.
We do not have a firm delivery date yet for the Part 3 files
(place-of-residence by place-of-work commuter flow data) for initial
review. The flow data present significant challenges for the software
vendors to overcome. We anticipate that data will be available some time

Attached is Census News Brief #17. It covers a recent Census Bureau
report on the ACS Voluntary Test, a new National Research Council report
on Census 2000, an appropriations update, and more.
My apologies for citing incorrect 1990 CTPP Table numbers in my recent email. Please use http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ctpp/1990sf3.htm to check for correspondence.
Obviously, I should NOT try to do anything on the day before I leave for TRB!
There will be a TRB conference on research on Women's Issues in Transportation, November 18-20, 2004, in Chicago. Abstracts are due March 1, 2004 (see attached Call for Abstracts) Conference website is http://www.TRB.org/Conferences/Women
The most recently held conference addressing this topic was held in 1996, sponsored by FHWA. Papers from the 1996 conference are posted at: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/womens/wtipage.htm
Several tables in CTPP 2000 include Gender:
For WORKERS (for both RESIDENCE AND WORKPLACE TABULATIONS)
1-02 / 2-02 Sex by Means of Transportation
1-03 / 2-03 Sex by Occupation
1-04 / 2-04 Sex by Industry
1-05 / 2-05 Sex by Class of Worker
1-06 / 2-06 Sex by Worker earnings
1-07 / 2-07 Sex by Hours worked per week in 1999
FOR PERSONS (for RESIDENCE tabulations)
1-54 Sex by Employment Status
Also, there are some tables using "age group of youngest child in the household" that may be of interest.
The Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) is another Census data resource that may be appropriate for exploring commuting by gender along with other demographic and socio-economic characteristics. Due to Disclosure Review procedures at the Census Bureau, the CTPP is limited in the number of cross-tabulation variables in each table.
I expect the CTPP 2000 Part 2 files release to State DOTs and MPOs to be complete by the end of February, and perhaps even before, so both Parts 1 and 2 should be available for small area data analysis for this topic. In addition, the 1990 CTPP included similar tables by Gender. (Part 1 tables 17 thru 21; and Part 2 tables 2 thru 6).
