Transporation Data Users,
The Census Bureau has provided early release of selected workplace based
tables for areas affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Included in this
release are the following tables:
B08406. Sex of Workers by Means of Transportation for Workplace Geography,
B08526. Means of Transportation to Work by Industry for Workplace
B08528. Means of Transportation to Work by Class of Worker for Workplace
B08534. Means of Transportation to Work by Travel Time to Work for
Workplace Geography, 2004
These tables are being released for States, Counties, Places, and
Metropolitan Statistical Areas for areas of 250,000 or more residents in
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and
Texas. These tabulations are produced to provide estimates of workers at
the location of their workplace. Estimates of counts of workers at the
workplace may differ from those of other programs because of variations in
definitions, coverage, methods of collection, reference periods, and
estimation procedures. The ACS is a household survey which provides data
that pertains to individuals, families, and households.
This data for AL, LA, and MS can be found on the Hurricane Data link off
the main Census page at www.census.gov
or directly at
. Currently on the
Katrina tab, there is a Transporation Section which contains the Workplace
tables. This site will be updated to reflect the damage done by Rita, so
check back on the "Rita tab" for more information later.
The complete tables can be found on AmericanFactfinder
), marking the first time data tabulated at the
Workplace Geography is included on American FactFinder.
The remainder of the states geography will be released early next year as
indicated in the current schedule for 2004 ACS data.
