A Seminar: Innovations in the 2020 Census
Monday, November 30th, 12-2pm
Pew Research Center
Get a comprehensive insider's perspective on the research and planning leading to exciting changes coming to the next decennial census!
The 2020 Census will be like no decennial census before it. The Census Bureau is reengineering key processes to make the 2020 count the most technologically advanced decennial census ever taken-including innovative techniques and technology as well as new data sources-while still producing quality results. Beginning early in this decade, the Census Bureau's research and testing has focused on those innovations that showed the most promise of significant cost avoidance, with the goal of using the results to outline the general shape of the 2020 Census by the end of FY 2015. Those decisions have now been made and documented in the 2020 Census Operational Plan for release in early October.
Lisa Blumerman, Associate Director for Decennial Census Programs, will summarize the design decisions and the associated estimates of cost savings. She also will highlight research and testing the Census Bureau has done leading up to these design decisions. Free registration and directions here.
