Do you think it would be possible for someone to repost the spreadsheets to
the list listserve? I went to the archive but could not read the files.

This is because more people are continuing to work after age 65 and we need
to start tracking these trends.
I noticed that several tables include "earnings" but there are no tables
using "household income" as a variable. Do you want something that
cross-tabulates a Journey-to-work variable with household income? e.g.
Household income * Means of transportation to work, or household income * #

Subject: [CTPP] Draft Proposal for Transportation-Related Data Products
from ACS for 2004 and Beyond
I will be delivering a presentation this week in Irvine CA at the
Transportation Research Board Conference, "Census Data for Transportation
Planning: Preparing for the Future." I've put together a handout to go
along with the presentation which outlines the transportation-related
content in some new and/or revamped ACS data products. These proposals
have not received final approval yet, so are still subject to change. But
I've been asked to post them to the listserve to reach a wider audience.
The bottom line is that the standard products from ACS will have a lot
tables on the characteristics of workers than have
in either the ACS or in the decennial census. And for
the first time
there will be data tabulated by workplace geography in
a standard Census
Bureau data product. The handout does not cover all products from ACS,
two new types of products ("selected population
profiles" and "subject
tables") and a major revision to the detailed tables (to be called "base
tables" in the future). You should print out the various worksheets to
at them, since there is useful information in the
headers and footers
does not show up when you are just looking at the
sheet on the screen.
