Abstract: The Census Transportation Planning Package (CTPP) is a set of special tabulations of 1990 census data tailored to meet the needs of transportation planners. This CD-ROM contains statewide package for Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. There are three types of data available. Part A lists characteristics of persons, workers, and housing units by county and place of 2,500 or more (city, town and village, etc.) of residence. Part B contains characteristics of workers by county and place of 2,500 or more of work. Part C shows characteristics of workers in journey-to-work flows between counties and places of 2,500 or more of residence and counties and places of 2,500 or more of work. The data on this CD-ROM can be accessed by using TransVU-CTPP software. They are also in raw ascii format. Their data dictionaries and documentation can be found under directory, DOCS. TrnsVU-CTPP presents CTPP data in maps and tables. It can also extract CTPP tables into dBase, Lotus and comma delimited or fixed format text file. Users can select tables by summary level, by topic, by universe, or geographic location.
