Two items regarding the Oct 3 release:
1. The population threshold for table release in 2005 ACS is "65,000
population." The Census Bureau made a decision that for the tables FOR
WORKPLACE GEOGRAPHY, they would use the same geographic units based on
RESIDENCE geography that met the 65,000 population threshold.
That is, for example if County A had a population of 70,000 residents,
they would include a WORKPLACE GEOGRAPHY table for County A, without
setting a threshold for count of workers.
2. What geographic detail will be included in the WORKPLACE GEOGRAPHY
tables. My earlier email had an error (which Chuck Purvis' email
corrected). So, please note that PLACE level tabulations "FOR WORKPLACE
GEOGRAPHY" WILL be included, not just STATE and COUNTY.
The table titles will say "FOR WORKPLACE GEOGRAPHY".
Try not to get too confused! B08008 shows RESIDENCE geography (table
released August 29) by "Place of Work".
