The Census is Over; Data Delays and Dilemmas Remain

The 2020 Census is over. Or is it? More data releases from the “decennial” are on the way (but delayed), along with annual surveys and estimates that are released all decade long. Find out what’s coming and when, what’s causing delays, does privacy balance with accuracy, what’s worrisome to state and local data users about data privacy protocols and what this all means for confidence in our nation’s public data.

Speakers: Margo Anderson, Distinguished Professor Emerita of History and Urban Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Susan Brower, Minnesota State Demographer, Cynthia Davis Hollingsworth, U.S. Census Bureau and Michael Hawes, U.S. Census Bureau
