  • Special Topics and Emerging Issues in Public Data: How Will New Census Bureau Privacy Measures Change 2020 Decennial Census Data

    The Census Bureau is introducing a new framework to protect individual data in the Decennial Census: “Differential Privacy”. This has implications for the reliability and availability of invaluable federal statistics – decreasing accuracy for small areas and small sub-population counts and reducing the scope of various data products in exchange for improved privacy protections.

    This webinar from the Association of Public Data Users will provide a background on Disclosure Avoidance, details on the policy decisions leading to Differential Privacy and its subsequent implementation, and comparisons of recently released data comparing previously available 2010 Census data with data demonstrating the impact of Differential Privacy.
