Subject: Good news about the CTPP 2000
Late yesterday, we received word from Nancy Gordon of the Census Bureau that they are
reversing their April decision to withhold 10 additional CTPP tables from release because
of disclosure concerns. Over the past several weeks, Jack Basso and I at AASHTO along
with staff from BTS and FHWA have been discussing with Census Bureau staff our concerns
about the April decision and the major negative impact it would have on the 2000 CTPP
package for the States and MPOs.
I spoke with Phil Salopek of the Census Bureau today regarding the revised schedule now
that they have the green light to start releasing these materials (CTPP Part 1). Phil
indicated that the first of the state CDs would go out in early June, with all of the
states and MPOs having their respective CDs by the end of July. Phil said that they will
do a limited production of CDs initially (two per MPO plus the quantity requested by the
State DOT). Once a State and its MPOs have their CDs, they would have about a one month
period to use it and let the Census Bureau know of any corrections needed. Once a state CD
has been through that review process and any corrections have been made, then a larger
quantity of CDs would be prepared for public distribution.
