TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IN SMALL METROPOLITAN AREAS

This workshop attempted to evaluate the utility and comprehensiveness of regular and special products of small metropolitan areas, with particular emphasis on the Urban Transportation Planning Package (UTPP). The workshop also discussed possible changes in questionnaire content, survey design, geographic coding, products, and other aspects of the 1990 census that affect small urban area transportation planning. Continuing and anticipated data needs were identified, and it was determined which of the critical needs are best met by the decennial census. In small urban areas, the transportation community needs the census data to be coded to block-level geography. Detailed recommendations are presented to the following areas: questionnaire content; procedures and sample size; and institutional and administrative concerns.
