NOTE: "POW" added to workplace geography description for clarification purposes. Geocomponents were intended to be used for National AND state level on parts 1 and 2 @ Elaine (5/8/08)

4/13/09 Note: Since 4/01/09, three summary levels were removed from the request. In Part 1, State-POWPUMA was removed, in Part 2 POW State-PUMA5, and in Part 3 State-POWPUMA to POW State-POWPUMA flows (per Elaine Murakami). This is due to slivers created between the (static) PUMA5s and the (updated) POWPUMAs.
