You want to know how many workers working in downtown live in specific suburbs. I would
go about it in a different way:
1. Select WORKPLACE - IN, the second option.
2. Select all the destination TAZs.
3. Select the general residence area = All workers in the state of MN?
4. Option a.
Once the session is created, you can either export the data to an Excel spreadsheet, and
i. Break the components of geography into the Residence, Work TAZ, and then
ii. Query for the specific TAZs in the suburbia on the residence end.
i. Click on the mapping engine, then click on the Data Analysis Tool.
ii. Using the yellow selection tool, Select all the flows you want to aggregate between
the downtown and the specific TAZs.
iii. Highlight the tables you want to aggregate, and then click on the spreadsheet view
within the Data Analysis Window. The aggregated answer will show-up on the sheet.
Part 3 is going to cause some confusion in the minds of any user. Also, please note that
tables 3-08 to 3-14 should not be accessed using the browser, use the TranStats website
instead. If in doubt, please call/e-mail me.

Subject: [CTPP] CTPP - Part 3 - summary level question
I just received the CDs for Part 3 of the 2000 CTPP and have attempted
to follow the instructions on how to run through the various options. I
have had problems trying to access different summary levels. On the
bottom of page 1 of the instructions for working with Part3 it states:
"First option button: "From RESIDENCE Geography out" -- click this
radial button if you want to know the workplaces for residents in a
particular area. For example, if you want to know where workers who
live in Suburb A commute. Do they go downtown, or to the largest
employer, or do they go all over the region."
Since I would like to know how many workers living in specific suburbs
actually work downtown, this appeared to be the way to go. HOWEVER, if
I select the summary level for the place of residence, I cannot
re-select the summary level for place of work. How can I get "downtown"
as a work destination, which is at the TAZ level if the only summary
level option available is "place"?
Apparently I have to identify the TAZ for each place of resident in
order to get TAZ of work. Yet I cannot identify TAZs of work - all I
get to select is the county of work. So I get all TAZs in the county.
Am I doing this incorrectly? Any thoughts?
