Abstract The concept of the daytime population refers to the number of people who are present in an area during typical business hours, including workers, children in school, people in hospitals or other short-term medical facilities, people temporarily staying in lodging facilities, and customers present at retail locations. This is in contrast to the resident population, which refers to people who reside in a given area and are typically present during the evening and nighttime hours. Information on the expansion or contraction of worker populations throughout a typical workday is important for a variety of community planning purposes. These purposes may include, for example, addressing transportation planning issues and disaster relief operations. The Census Bureau first published daytime population estimates using Census 2000 data. The estimates from Census 2000 are limited to the location of workers in a typical workday. No adjustments were made to account for the time of day commuters worked inside or outside specified areas or geographies. Thus, the estimates from Census 2000 are more accurately described as commuter-adjusted population estimates rather than the more familiar concept of daytime population estimates.
