The tables presented in this report are preprints of tables 216, 302, and 303 from Final Report PC(1)-1D, which contains additional summary information on the detailed characteristics of the population.

About 83 percent of the workers living in the central cities of standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSA's) of 100,000 or more also worked in these central cities, about 9 percent commuted to the outlying suburban ring and approximately 2 percent worked outside the area (table 302). Of the workers living in the ring of these SMSA’s, about 58 percent worked in the ring, 33 percent in the central cities, and 5 percent worked outside their SMSA of residence.

Although the major part of the working population of central cities of the combined SMSA’s work in these cities, there is an appreciable variation from area to area. There was no SMSA in which less than one-half of the resident workers of central cities worked in these cities. There were, for example, 3 SMSA's, Huntsville, Jersey City, and Newark in which this percentage ranged between 50 and 60. At the other extreme, the figure for the Newport News-Hampton SMSA was 93 percent, and there were 7 other SMSA's in which it fell between 90 and 93 percent.
