In response to my own question: what are the geographic levels for the
"area-of-work" tabulations, scheduled for release next Tuesday, October
3rd, the answer is on the American Factfinder site, here:
download the file: ACS 2005 Data_Product Geographic Restriction
The answer is:
State, County, County subdivisions (12 MCD states only), Place, Metro
Areas (CBSA, metro/micro, principal city, NECTA division, etc. or
summary levels 040, 050, 060,160, 330, 310, 312, 314, 335, 350, 352, and
So, no, we won't get PUMAs or Congressional Districts.

How time flies! Just when you thought you were getting a handle on
journey-to-work data from the 2005 ACS, the next round of data will
released! The next set will include Place of Work tabulations. From
the CTPP world, these are like "CTPP Part 2" tables, where the
tabulation is by place-of-work, rather than place-of-residence.
the 2005 ACS included ALL counties in the sample, the place-of-work
tabulations should look much better than the 2004 ACS place-of-work
tabulations (about one-third of counties were included in the sample).
1. 2005 ACS does not include Group Quarters population. That is,
with large military installations and/or college dormitories should
expect considerable differences when comparing to Census 2000 results.
2. The data are collected over all 12 months, therefore areas with
seasonal shifts are likely to see the greatest differences when
comparing to Census 2000 results.
Good luck! Nanda Srinivasan, Ed Christopher and I are trying to wrap
our new Profile sheets using the 2005 ACS Place-of-Residence tables,
we have had a lot of work on calculating Margins of Error and
incorporating the results into the tables.
