Call for Presentations - Webinar: Use of Multiple Census Data Sets for Transportation Planning

Data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau is used to develop various products that support transportation planning. Examples include the American Community Survey (ACS), Census Transportation Planning Products (CTPP), Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD), and Economic Census County Business Patterns. In order to address increasingly complex planning issues such as equity, multi-modal mobility, economic development and livability, transportation planners often incorporate data from multiple sources for their analyses.

The CTPP Program and TRB Census Subcommittee will jointly sponsor a webinar on Thursday, August 13, 2015 from 2:30-4:30 pm ET on the use of multiple census data sets for transportation planning. The goals of the webinar are to:

• Identify and highlight innovative uses of Census data sets
• Demonstrate how different Census data sets can be used in conjunction with one another for analysis
• Improve understanding of advanced Census data applications
• Share challenges and lessons learned with the Census data user community

To submit a presentation for consideration, please send an abstract/summary of 500 words or less to Jim Hubbell (jhubbell@marc.org) by 5:00 PM ET on Friday, July 3, 2015. Presentations should be around 15-20 minutes in duration.
  • Hello,

    CTPP would be very interesting of my PhD project so I am very interested to attend the webinar and I would like to ask for some information on the process that I should follow to register. Should I do a registration somewhere online?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best,
