Authors: Jung Seo, Tom Vo, Yunkyung Choi
Work destination analysis at the local jurisdictions level is important for understanding workers' commuting patterns among local jurisdictions. SCAG staff has conducted an analysis of work destinations for 197 jurisdictions in the region. To analyze and visualize work destinations, SCAG staff developed an automated workflow using Census LODES data, integrated with ArcGIS, SAS and Python scripting. The results help jurisdictions and business community to understand where residents are employed.
