On the road again: the geography and characteristics of American commuter megaregions (supplementary files for book chapter)
datasetposted on 05.01.2018 by Alasdair Rae, Garrett Nelson
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This repository contains data relating to our book chapter on the anatomy of US megaregions, entitled: "On the road again: the geography and characteristics of American commuter megaregions".
We are sharing the full datasets here for others to explore.
There are four different files here, as below.
1. megaregions_data_master_011217.xlsx - this file contains full details of the megaregions in relation to their characteristics - including demographics and transport modes.
2. commutes-matrix.jpg - this is a graphic from the associated paper which shows the strength of connection between different megaregions.
3. megaregions-and-cities.jpg - this is a graphic which shows the shape and size of megaregions in addition to their major cities.
4. Megaregion Interflows.xlsx - this file provides more detail on the number of commutes between the megaregions.
