Census of Population and Housing, 2000 [United States]: Minor Civil Division/County-to-Minor Civil Division/County Worker Flow Files (ICPSR 13572)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
These files were compiled from Census 2000 responses to the long-form (sample) questions about where people worked. The files present data at the county subdivision or minor civil division (MCD) level for residents of 12 states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin. The MCDs in these states serve as general-purpose local governments and perfrom many governmental functions. For the other 38 states and the District of Columbia data are presented at the county level. Data are also provided for Puerto Rico, where the county equivalent is the municipio.
These data are freely available.

Data Collection Notes:
When the Bureau of the Census reviewed the worker flow files before release, some errors were discovered in a number of the MCD/county-to-MCD/county flows. These errors have been corrected. However, as a result of the corrections the data in these files may not agree with data previously released in Summary File 3. In particular, there may be differences in the number of people working in the state and/or MCD/county of residence between SF3 and similar estimates derived from these files.
The database dictionary is provided by the principal investigator as an ASCII text document.
