    Anyone have experience or good references as to how to measure commuting workers from a small, rural, unincorporated community twenty interstate highway minutes from an SMSA?

    Q. Are you wanting to get current numbers beyond the Census' ?

    Journey To Work and Place Of Work

    2000 County-to-County Worker Flow Files
    2000 Minor Civil Division/County-to-Minor Civil Division/County Worker Flow Files

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Well, it appears the key here is 'small, rural, unincorporated' community.

    The MCD worker flow files are available for a limited number of states. I'm not sure offhand if Montana is one of them. If not, you may need to extrapolate from the county data. Did you look at Place of Work information for the census tract and/or block group associated with the unincorporated community? I'd start there.
