State/Local Strategies for a Stronger American Community Survey & Census

Did you know that 2020 data about your community—including poverty, education, workforce, transportation, housing, and health—are at risk?

Given the low census response rates during the pandemic, the U.S. Census Bureau will only be able to release experimental estimates from the 2020 American Community Survey. These will be released in November 2021, for "a limited number of data tables for limited geographies."

More generally, funding for the American Community Survey (ACS) is at risk, and low response rates present a problem in many states, particularly in rural areas, Native communities, and communities of color.

What can states and localities do about this important problem?
Join us on October 20, to find out what is already happening, and how your state and region can get involved. We encourage leaders and stakeholders from business, philanthropy, community organizations, government agencies, and state legislatures to attend.
