TEST AND EVALUATION OF DATA FROM THE STANDARD PACKAGE OF CENSUS DATA FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION STUDIES

The census data consist of 1970 census of population and housing data which were specifically selected and assembled for use in the urban transportation planning process. It is based on the 15 and 20% census count data which were assigned to locally used small areal identifiers such as traffic zones. The socioeconomic data is assembled into zone of residence and zone of work tables. In addition, there is a home-to-work trip table by mode of transportation. Phase I of this project tests the validity of the zone of residence data by comparing it to local data and other census sources. Phase II of this project determined the usability of the Standard Package in the transportation planning process. The analysis of the Standard Package led to a number of recommendations and conclusions about its contents. These include comments on the usability of the current package, recommendations to the user, and suggestions for improving it.
