Dear Colleagues (apologies for cross-posting for those who also subscribe to TMIP-L),


The study team for NCHRP 8-79 (Developing Transportation Data Products from the American Community Survey That Comply With Disclosure Rules) is looking for small and medium-sized MPOs to participate in the second phase of research into the impact of disclosure-avoidance techniques on the resulting data usability for transportation planning and travel demand modeling of the 5-year ACS-based CTPP tabulations.  The team is interested both in small and medium-sized MPOs who maintain their own travel demand forecasting models, and MPOs who perform sketch-planning modeling using the methods from NCHRP Report 365.  Participation would include production of a nominal amount of travel model output.


Please contact me off-list at if you represent a small or medium-sized MPO and would like to assist the research effort, or know of some good candidate agencies.  Thank you for your time.
