Plans & Budget

The Census Bureau has begun a multi-year process of transforming its organization and operations from a 20th century survey-centric model to a 21st century data-centric model that blends survey data with administrative and alternative digital data sources, which will benefit all Census programs, and in turn, provide more timely and relevant data products to our stakeholders.

The budget includes funding for the current and periodic economic programs (including the monthly, quarterly, and annual economic surveys and five-year economic census and census of governments), current demographic statistics programs, the American Community Survey, the decennial census, and enterprise enabling programs, which provide bureau-wide geographic information and data collection and dissemination systems. Further, the budget supports the goals in the FY 2022 through FY 2026 Strategic Plan, which are to provide more relevant data to assist stakeholders in being better prepared and solving problems, foster innovations to meet society’s evolving needs and improve data products, and build an inclusive workforce to remain on the forefront of data inno­vations, data quality, and public trust.
