The list of tables for the 2006 ACS is set. The 2006 ACS included Group
The CB will be defining the 2007 ACS STANDARD table set in Fall 2007.
The 2005-2007 ACS will be the first time an accumulated 3-year data from
ACS will be available.
Nathan Erlbaum of New York State DOT has asked USDOT to request a
univariate table of workers by INDUSTRY for workplace geography, because
he is finding that a count of workers by 3-digit NAICS is very useful
for estimating truck traffic. There are currently a couple of tables
with INDUSTRY in the standard ACS table set, but they are
cross-tabulated with MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION TO WORK, and therefore more
likely to be suppressed or collapsed.
There are also some tables for residence geography of B24030: SEX by
INDUSTRY, and B24040: SEX by INDUSTRY for full-time, year-round civilian
employed, which might address Nathan's wish to have a parallel table at
So, please take the time to examine the current 2005 ACS table
While the CB does not want to be inundated with many new table requests,
I am taking this opportunity to ask you (the transportation data user
community) for your input. This way, we can submit ONE coordinated
request to the CB. We also expect the new CTPP to include a 3-year CTPP
SPECIAL TABULATION from ACS, so if your table request is not added to
the CB's STANDARD set, we can consider it for the CTPP set!
Thanks in advance for your input! We have organized a National Data
Workshop on Sunday, May 6 at 2 p.m. at the TRB Transportation Planning
Applications Conference in Daytona Beach. We will be covering both CTPP
and NHTS. See you there!
