What is a Commuter-Adjusted population? For the purposes of this description we will describe it as Large amounts of people and things moving in a regular pattern, usually linked to work activities1. This Commuter-Adjusted population, shifts by as much as 78% in large metropolitan areas including New York City, District of Columbia, London, Paris, and Amsterdam. Massive movements of people place significant demands on service provider networks . Typical adjustments occur when the named Daytime Population1, that we will call the daily commuter, is flocking into the larger metropolitan areas for work. Figure 1 below shows the population change across some of the larger cities within the United States with the type of workers commuting.
