The Census Bureau is reinstating its Embargo Policy, which allows embargo access to select news releases and data products, effective immediately. The first product that will be available for embargo are the 2010 Census Demographic Profiles, which will be posted to the embargo site at 10:00 a.m. EDT Tuesday, May 3 for public release at 12:01 a.m. EDT Thursday, May 5. Wire and distribution services are prohibited from distributing embargoed news releases and data files to subscribers before the public release date and time.
Access to the Census Bureau's embargo site is limited to members of accredited media who give their chief attention to the gathering and reporting of news. Applicants must be employed or represent news organizations that regularly publish or broadcast a substantial volume of news material for public consumption. Note that the new embargo policy grants access to individuals, not organizations. Individuals are responsible for complying with the embargo policy, and cannot share their access information with others, even those within their same media outlet. See Accreditation Requirements for more information on embargo qualifications.
To apply for embargo access, go to our Newsroom at http://www.census.gov/newsroom.html and click on “Embargoed Releases.” Please review the Embargo Policy carefully before submitting the embargo registration form.
Please note, because a new policy is in place, all previously issued embargo usernames and passwords have been disabled. You MUST reapply and agree to the terms of the new embargo policy to be considered for embargo access.
We will make every effort to review your application and notify you of its status as soon as possible, usually within a week of receipt. Going forward, products scheduled for embargo will be listed, in advance, on the Census Bureau's biweekly Tip Sheet. An e-mail notification will be sent to embargo accounts holders when an embargo product becomes available.
