2020 Census Data Products: A Workshop


Project Scope:

A planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will organize and execute a 2-day public workshop for the U.S. Census Bureau to discuss the suite of data products the Census Bureau will generate from the 2020 Census. The workshop will feature presentations by users of decennial census data products to help the Census Bureau better understand the uses of the data products and the importance of these uses. The workshop will focus extensively on data-product use cases outside the legally mandated apportionment and redistricting settings; however, the uses of and demand for the block-level counts included in the data files produced pursuant to P.L. 94-171 are important to elicit in considering the full suite of 2020 census data products. An important consideration of the workshop will be the overall level of noise that is injected into the results, which is being done to preserve the confidentiality of responses, as well as the allocation of that noise across data products. The discussion will be focused to help inform the Census Bureau's decisions on the final specification of 2020 data products. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
