Workshop on 2020 Census Data Products: Data Needs and Privacy Considerations

December 11 - 12, 2019

Auditorium, National Academy of Sciences Building

2101 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20418


The U.S. Census Bureau is implementing a new Disclosure Avoidance System (DAS) for the 2020 Census, after concluding that its previous methods permitted larger than expected risks of person reidentification. Implementing the 2020 DAS on 2010 Census data yielded a set of 2010 Demonstration Data Products, allowing data users to study impacts of the new system. The December 11-12, 2019, Workshop on 2020 Census Data Products provided a forum for studying the utility of privatized census tabulations and engaged the user and privacy communities in discussing trade-offs between "accuracy" and "privacy" in shaping the final 2020 DAS.
