CTPP Town Hall Meeting:  Elimination of Tables in Special Tabulation

AASHTO needs your input for the elimination of tables in the CTPP. They have employed a methodology to suggest tables for elimination, however, a key feature of the methodology (google analytics for number of times a data table is accessed at any geography) does not take into account any users who have accessed the data by any means other than through the software. All "power users" who have downloaded data by FTP take note. Your use is not captured, and your input is necessary!

CTPP is hosting a series of "town hall" meetings to present findings and get your input and feedback.

Please consider attending one:

  • Monday, November 9 at 10:00 am EST
  • Tuesday, November 10 at 1:00 pm EST, or
  • Thursday, November 12 at Noon EST
