Subject: [CTPP] CTPP Town Hall Meeting on the elimination of tables in the
Apologies for cross-posting, please forward to census data users
Attention CTPP Data Users
The Census Bureau has directed us to request a special tabulation for our
next 5-year data product that is one third (1/3) the size of our current
special tabulation. Additionally, we are limited in the number of tables
that can include all levels of geography; most tables will be produced at
census summary levels of place, MCD (for strong MCD states), county, TAD,
PUMA, state, MSA (and principal city), and nation. Only a few will also be
available at Tract and TAZ.
We need your input for the elimination of tables in the CTPP, we are leery
of eliminating tables critical to analysis. We have employed a methodology
to suggest tables for elimination, however, a key feature of the methodology
(google analytics for number of times a data table is accessed at any
geography) does not take into account any users who have accessed the data
by any means other than through the software. All "power users" who have
downloaded data by FTP take note. Your use is not captured, and we need to
hear from you!
CTPP is hosting a series of "town hall" meetings to present our findings and
get your input and feedback.
Please consider attending one:
Monday, November 9 at 10:00 am EST
Tuesday, November 10 at 1:00 pm EST, or
Thursday, November 12 at Noon EST
By logging into: <https://connectdot.connectsolutions.com/ctpp_town_hall/>
1-888-585-9008 passcode/room: 433-083-926
The same information will be presented at all three meetings, so you need
only attend one. Registration is not required, but space is limited. If you
would like the materials and methodology to review ahead, please email
pweinberger(a)aashto.org and I will send the materials.
I look forward to seeing many of you in the coming week,
Penelope Z. Weinberger
