[TMIP] TRB Transportation Planning Applications Conference - Stay Until the End or You'll Miss Out!
Tue, 30 Apr 2019 07:47:19 -0400
As you plan your travel to TRBAppcon, be sure to stay until the very end of the Conference! We have great sessions and workshops planned for the final day, ending with a hands on workshop bringing together CTPP and R that you WON'T want to miss! Here's a description of what's in store:
CTPP data and R-based survey analysis
This workshop is in two parts, first a dive into the Census Transportation Planning Products Program and its rich demographic data set. Pitfalls and caveats of census and census based data, along with a healthy dose of generally good data practices. Then we will look at an exciting way to access the data into R, the opportunities available in a new way to mash CTPP and the National Household Travel Survey (NHTS) along with other regional Household Travel Surveys, including the ability to make customized crosswalk requests from the CTPP and have them publicly available. You will leave this workshop with the R tools to repeat the demonstrated analysis, and directions for incorporating other local regional travel survey datasets. Intrigued? You should be!
Record numbers of planners, engineers and data scientists have again registered to join their colleagues at the upcoming 17th TRB Transportation Planning Applications Conference (TRBAppcon) in Portland, June 2-5th. The Program-at-a-Glance can be found here<https://www.trbappcon.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019_Program_Detaile…> and I encourage you to take a look and start to plan you visit. If you've not yet registered, you can do that here<http://www.cvent.com/events/17th-trb-transportation-planning-applications-c…> - but don't wait too long as the rates go up again on May 1st! And by all means STAY UNTIL THE END OF THE CONFERENCE!!

Hi friends of Census Tracts-
If it's useful to you... Census Bureau has published a contacts list of 2020 Census PSAP participating agencies, here: https://www2.census.gov/geo/pdfs/partnerships/psap/Primary_PSAP_Participant…
This list covers every county in the nation.
If the listing for your county points to an erroneous agency or a nonworking phone number/email, I suggest you alert Census's Geog Division: geo.psap(a)census.gov<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
By the way, our office, Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities, has a few upcoming meetings where we'll be describing our review, validation and redrawing of Census Tracts and Block Groups. We are well into the preliminary work. Starting in March we will be pointing interested stakeholders to preliminary, proposed re-tracting for our 7-county region.
And we will be inviting stakeholders to comment or express their needs for Census stats tabulations for sub-city zones, service areas, etc. We will consider whether those needs can possibly be met with 2020-vintage Tracts and Block Groups.
It's possible we may receive some comments from outside of our region. When that happens, we will be redirecting commenters to the other county governments and regional development commissions in our state... May want to bookmark the participants list mentioned above!
Hope that helps.
