Wayne A. Fuller Lecture – Kenneth Prewitt: The Next Census: What’s New?

CATEGORIES: Statistics
February 8, 2021, 11:00am-12:00pm | Virtual (Zoom)

The next census (2030) will less resemble the current census (2020) than the current census resembles the first census (1790).  Prof. Prewitt will take us on an odyssey through history and future directions for the US decennial census, taking up such themes as:  privacy faces off against accuracy; government data or commercial data; the ” Big Brother is Watching” anxiety; getting serious about fit for use; will data curation edge aside data collection; how important is granularity; is the Census for sale?
