In January 2018, the Census Transportation Planning Products Oversight Board announced that data sets following the 2012 – 2016 data set expected in 2019 will not contain small geography at the Transportation Analysis Zone (TAZ) and Transportation Analysis District (TAD) levels. CTPP is adopting the standard Census Block Group for future data tabulations.  To support the creation of Block Groups that are useful for transportation planning, the CTPP Board is recommending that the transportation community review the Federal Register notices on criteria for 2020 Census geography and participate in the 2020 Census Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP).

To help the transportation community prepare for this change, CTPP will host a webinar on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET. With speakers from regional agencies and the Census Bureau, the webinar will include overviews of the Board’s policy, the Census criteria and PSAP programs, and how one regional agency will be involved with PSAP and what that can mean to MPOs, RTPOs, and states. Registration for this free webinar is required and can be completed at
