CTPP Profiles

using 2010-2012 ACS


Be cautious when using ACS 2010-2012 population estimates at PLACE level. The weights for ACS data are controlled by county, therefore, some of the sub-county estimates, such as city, may be problematic. For example, for the Oakland City, CA, the ACS 3-year estimate shows the population at 396,030, while 399,477 from Census 2000. A similar decrease can be found in Paducah, KY, which shows a loss of 800 in population between 2010-2012 ACS and Census 2000. You may prefer to use independent City totals and use the ACS values for proportions alone.

Note: All profiles were generated by Office 2003 to serve more user groups. If you are using Office 2007, you will have to maximize the spreadsheet window for better viewing.

After selecting your areas, please click on the 'submit' button, the profile pages for those areas will be found below the 'submit' button.

These profiles include data from the 2010-2012, 2007-2009 American Community Survey (ACS), Census 2000 and the Census 2010. The Profiles are designed to give transportation planners a handy way to examine trends by including two time points. However, because the survey methods are different, users need to understand how the ACS differs from the decennial census long form in 2000. Please read the notes for more information: Notes. The profiles are available only for those areas meeting a 20,000 population threshold. Some geographies miss some or all profiles even if they have a population of 20,000 or more. For these geographies, ACS source tables get suppressed because of a small number of sample cases.

A total of six transportation profile tables are available.

Profile 1 has the four tables: selected characteristics, mode to work at place of residence, mode to work at place of work and mean travel time by mode to work.

Profile 2 has two tables: male and female mode to work by travel time.
