Explanation:
* "nn" is geo-component number, as defined in the CTPP spec (see codes below). For many summary levels (for example, C03), we do not produce components, so a "00" is always placed there.
* The various letters in the "Format" column refer to each type of geography. For example, for summary level C03, after the "US", the next two characters show the state and the next three show the county. The letters are the same for both residence and place of work geographies, including 'u' for PUMAs and POWPUMAs.
* 's' refers to state, 'c' refers to county, 'm' refers to MCD, 'p' refers to place, 'b' refers to CBSA, 'z' refers to TAZ, 'd' refers to TAD, 'b' refers to urbanized area, 'u' refers to a PUMA, and 'r' refers to areas outside the United States (states & D.C.)
