Research @ Census

Census at the 2012 Population Association of America Annual Meeting

Demographic research is key to the success of many of the Census Bureau's programs. Our presence at the PAA Annual Meeting Link to a non-federal Web site provided Census Bureau staff the opportunity to present their latest research findings and exchange ideas with fellow demographers with a goal toward improving Census Bureau programs.
