Our Census: Looking Back to 2020 and Forward to 2030
This webinar will present highlights from the 2023 Committee on National Statistics, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (CNSTAT) report, Assessing the 2020 Census, on age heaping, population coverage, self-response, nonresponse follow-up, group quarters, race and ethnicity, and confidentiality protection plus recommendations for 2030.
