View the Norm DeWeaver New Census Newsletter

January 26, 2018


Attached is the latest issue of my occasional newsletter on American Indian and Alaska Native issues in Census Bureau operations and data.

The feature story concerns the decision announced today by the Census Bureau that it will continue to use separate questions for race and ethnicity on the 2020 Census form.  The issue has significant implications for the count of the American Indian/Alaska Native population in the upcoming decennial census as well as in future releases of American Community Survey data.

Comments, questions and suggestions always welcome.  Feel free to distribute this information to anyone you think may be interested. 

If you would like to suggest adding anyone to the distribution list for these newsletters, please let me know.  Or if you wish to be dropped from the list, please let me know that as well.
