CTPP Planning Partners -
Do you use ACS, QCEW, Census Transportation Planning Products or other data sources for
planning, modelling, or policy? Ever wonder how to best use these data sources or what
data source is best for a certain application or to answer a specific question?
We are asking for your insights on how and when you use employment data. To access the
survey, use the following link:
Employment data can help answer key questions such as: Where do workers live? How do
workers travel to work? Or, how accessible are employment centers? But using these data is
challenging when there are multiple sources of employment data - each with different
procedures, universes, and information. Different data sources can produce significantly
different estimates of employment and work distribution patterns.
Your responses to this survey will help us all better understand how and when to use
employment data. This survey is being performed under NCHRP 8-36, Task 127 Employment Data
which will develop a Resource Guide for transportation professionals. This guide will
provide information on the best data sources for specific purposes, frequently asked data
questions, and a library of examples of innovative applications of employment data.
The information and insights you share will help all of us learn more about the current
applications and future potential uses of employment data.
* This survey will take 5-7 minutes to complete.
* Responses will be reported in aggregate only and not identifiable by agency.
* We will develop case studies of the most innovative uses of data. Your experience
will help other agencies learn how to best apply data.
* Please forward and share this survey link with multiple staff at your agency. We are
interested in the use of employment data in planning, modelling, transit planning, and
policy development applications.
