I just received the CDs for Part 3 of the 2000 CTPP and have attempted
to follow the instructions on how to run through the various options. I
have had problems trying to access different summary levels. On the
bottom of page 1 of the instructions for working with Part3 it states:
"First option button: "From RESIDENCE Geography out" -- click this
radial button if you want to know the workplaces for residents in a
particular area. For example, if you want to know where workers who
live in Suburb A commute. Do they go downtown, or to the largest
employer, or do they go all over the region."
Since I would like to know how many workers living in specific suburbs
actually work downtown, this appeared to be the way to go. HOWEVER, if
I select the summary level for the place of residence, I cannot
re-select the summary level for place of work. How can I get "downtown"
as a work destination, which is at the TAZ level if the only summary
level option available is "place"?
Apparently I have to identify the TAZ for each place of resident in
order to get TAZ of work. Yet I cannot identify TAZs of work - all I
get to select is the county of work. So I get all TAZs in the county.
Am I doing this incorrectly? Any thoughts?
