The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the Historical Analysis of Census Transportation Data Report.
This document contains transportation-related data from the U.S. Census Bureau for Hampton Roads, 1970 through 2010. The 1970 through 2000 data comes from the respective decennial censuses. The 2010 data comes from both the 2010 decennial census and a three-year 2009-2011 sample from the Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), as noted.
The data is presented individually by locality and collectively for the region. Regional data is presented for both the HRTPO and the 2010 Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Using 2010 MSA data, Hampton Roads is compared to other MSAs of similar size. Locality data is presented for each of the 18 localities that fall into at least one of the Hampton Roads regional definitions.
