Diversity and Race Data: What Census Changes Mean for Policymakers

Between 2010 and 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau made changes to how it gathers race and ethnicity information. During that same decade, the U.S. became more diverse than ever, and Americans began to see their race and ethnicity differently as well. The result: more people identify as “some other race” and as “more than one race.” Learn what these changes may mean for redistricting, research and policymaking. Speakers include Nicholas Jones, U.S. Census Bureau, C. Matthew Snipp, Stanford University, and Clark Benson, Polidata.
