The project examines the variation in people's need for and use of transport services by posing four
research questions and answering them with transportation related data from the 1990 Census of Population
Questions posed are: 1) What is the socioeconomic profile of Minnesota's long-distance commuters? 2)
How do Minnesota's counties and urban neighborhoods vary according to transport needs and use? 3)
How can census data be used together with travel surveys to study the socioeconomic characteristics of
travelers? and 4) How has interaction among the state's local labor markets changed in the last twenty
The main findings are summarized in this report both verbally and graphically. References to the other
four reports are given.
