Daytime Population provides estimates of the number of people who are likely to be within a designated area during normal business hours. The estimates are based on compiled business data that includes the number of employees who work at each business location within a given dissemination area. These statistics are aggregated to estimate the number of daytime employees in each area.
Daytime employees are then added to the at-home residential population, including those who are retired, in school, or not in the labor force, to arrive at a total daytime population.
