Commuter-adjusted Population

See the recent article on The Atlantic Cities on "The Most Important Population Statistic That Hardly Ever Gets Talked About". The article discusses about the underscored importance of the "commuter-adjusted population" metric which can be obtained from the American Community Survey Data.
"Commuter-adjusted populations tell us a lot about where the jobs are and which communities do little more than give people a place to sleep. Count people where they work, and not where they live, and the resulting picture also further blurs the divide between cities and suburbs (and how we think about who is invested in which places)."
