Registered TransCAD users in the United States can download the latest CTPP 5-Year 2006-2010 tabulations of tract-level journey-to-work data.
Because the TAZ flow data omit flows to TAZs that do not have resident populations (e.g., TAZs that contain only businesses, industry, etc.), a significant number of journey-to-work data are omitted. Because of this incompleteness in the TAZ level data, Caliper is instead offering two TransCAD matrices with nationwide Census Tract flows. Caliper expects to make the TAZ to TAZ flow data available as soon as it is corrected by the Census Bureau.
The first, CTPP3 Tract-Tract Means7.mtx, has the sample estimate and margin of error fields for the journey to work with seven means of transportation, including total workers:
|Worked at home|
The second, CTPP3 Tract-Tract Small.mtx, has the sample estimate fields only from the following tables:
|B302101||Age of Worker|
|A302103||Means of Transportation|
|B302104||Time leaving home to go to work|
|B302106||Travel time to work|
