Census Overview: Getting Ready for 2020

 Registration is closed for this event


Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several states…according to their respective Numbers…. The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years. 

We find this mandate for a decennial census enshrined in Article 1, Section 2 of the United State Constitution.  From our earliest days as a nation, the Census has been a part of how we understand who we are and how we allocate our shared resources.  With the next accounting set for 2020, it’s time to revisit how this critical data is collected, compiled and used, and to learn how libraries can get involved. Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Explore the history of the US Census
  • Understand the various ways Census data is used (and where you can find it)
  • Learn about the challenges of conducting the US Census (and new issues being raised for Census 2020)
  • Examine opportunities for libraries to help get the word out and assist their communities through this process.
