Next Census Scientific Advisory Committee Meeting is September 17-18

The Census Scientific Advisory Committee will be meeting next (virtually) on September 17 and 18, 2020. With the 2020 Census still going and attendant controversy about a rushed end to the census, the discussion should be interesting. As explained in the Federal Register, the meeting “will address policy, research, and technical issues relating to a full range of Census Bureau programs and activities, including decennial, economic, field operations, information technology, and statistics.”

The agenda currently includes presentations on and discussions of current census operations, administrative data use, plans for post-enumeration evaluation, the use of differential privacy mechanisms, and the use of citizen age voting population data.

Interested viewers can connect via WebEx on September 17 and 18.
