Media and Case Studies
"More than a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, RTA needed to understand how daytime population counts were changing, by census tract, throughout the economic recovery. The agency needed data to inform financial and strategic planning, and specifically needed to investigate how changes in commuter habits could affect funding streams via sales taxes and rider fares. Using Replica Trends data, RTA was able to estimate the number of daily commuters into each census tract during different periods throughout the pandemic. Trends provided the number of people in each tract in the daytime hours, allowing RTA to find average daytime population statistics. By subtracting the residential population for each tract, RTA could see how many people had commuted into each tract in a given week. The agency fed this Trends data into its preferred visualization tool to create visuals for a meeting with its board of directors, presenting a clear illustration of the ways commuting habits continued to change over the course of the pandemic."
