Census Data for Transportation Planning
Preparing for the Future
May 11-13, 2005
Conference CD
In May 2005 about 100 transportation planning professionals met to  discuss their use of Census data; review current plans for the ACS,  ACS related research and future transportation data needs; and to recommend actions to improve the use of current census products.  Presented on this CD are the presentations, resource papers and other materials presented at the conference.  A MAJOR highlight of the conference which spurred the development of this CD were the presentation of 20 posters focusing on the use of census data products.
