Congratulations to Mr. Kyusik Kim of FSU Geography for having his paper on commuting dynamics during the Great Recession published in the Journal of Transport Geography. The paper uses a massive dataset in the Atlanta area to explore impacts on public vs. private sector workers.
With the program now posted, here is a link to a new paper which will be presented at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting (Washington, DC) in January of 2013. This multi-authored paper led by Dr. Michael Widener (University of Cincinnati) describes a new approach to measuring people’s accessibility to healthy food options in urban environments, controlling for selected activity constraints.
Our latest work on commuting and jobs-housing balance has just been published in Applied Geography. This paper works with a relatively new Census database known as LEHD to analyze commuting trends over the last several years. It uses the local Tallahassee area as a case study. FSU graduate student Daniel Schleith was a coauthor on the study.

Coauthored with FSU graduate student Daniel Schleith, this paper reports on a spatial and temporal analysis of commuting patterns using a new U.S. Census data source. The study period covers the years of the Great Recession and explores transportation trends during the economic downturn.
