Hi Everyone - We are in the sign-off process for the next issue of the
CTPP Status Report. It will probably be several weeks before it is
approved for distribution! Anyway, I happened to be looking at the
INDEX of articles http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ctpp/srindex.htm
so I thought
I would post some links to some "oldies but goodies."
"CTPP Workers at Work compared to Other Employment Estimates"
"Reconciling Total Employment (jobs) and Worker-at-Work"
Also, we got a question for which the easiest answer was to use CTPP
2000 Part 2 data (despite its age) at the census tract level. The
CTPP2000 Part 2 data are available via BTS, both in Transtats and by
ordering CDs http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ctpp/2000dataprod.htm
HOWEVER, one of the easiest ways to access this data at the tract level
is to use the Univ of WI-Milwaukee "drill downs"
As the ACS standard tabulations now include some workplace tabulations,
I don't know if UWM plans to update with ACS 2005-2009 data when the CB
releases the first 5-year ACS product (anticipated in December 2010).
More current data using QCEW and other administrative records would be
to use the LEHD On The Map data, but would require downloading block
level data and accumulating the blocks into tract summaries.
