U.S. Census Bureau Seeks Input on its Data Products

The U.S. Census Bureau is soliciting feedback from researchers on how its data products from prior decennial censuses are being used. The products in question include summary and detailed tables, national and state demographic profiles, and topical briefs. This feedback will inform how they prepare data products from the 2020 Census.

According to the announcement, privacy concerns may lead the Census Bureau to reduce the amount of detailed data released to the general public.

Comments must be submitted by Sept. 17, 2018.

Full information is available in the Federal Register notice.
