STATE DATA CENTERS: MEETING STATEWIDE DATA NEEDS

This paper covers both public and private applications of transportation-related census data by a statewide constituency of small agencies, firms and individuals in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania State Data Center (PSDC) and its different services and products are described, as are also the large variety of data users and projects. The paper also describes a survey designed to learn more about the needs of the transportation community. The Survey which focused on the Urban Transportation Planning Package (UTPP), was sent to 561 transportation-related organizations throughout the country. Unqualified success is reported for the PSDC in its mission of developing products and techniques to meet the data and information needs of a statewide constituency.
