Dr. Victoria A. Velkoff

Associate Director for Demographic Programs, U.S. Census Bureau

Dr. Victoria (Tori) A. Velkoff has spent over 25 years at the U.S. Census Bureau, where she currently serves as associate director for Demographic Programs. The Demographic Programs Directorate provides relevant and accurate information about the size, distribution and characteristics of the nation’s population, income and poverty, and housing. Demographic programs bridge the gap between censuses, providing information for policy decisions to promote the economic and social well-being of the United States. Additionally, the directorate is responsible for gathering international demographic data; providing survey and statistical services to other government agencies, such as survey design, data collection and data processing; maintaining strong partnerships with sponsors and stakeholders; and designing and marketing new products that meet national and international information needs. Velkoff previously led several divisions at the core of the Census Bureau’s mission. As chief of the American Community Survey Office, she led efforts to reduce respondent burden while maintaining the quality of the ACS.

Velkoff has a Ph.D. in sociology and demography from Princeton University, a master’s degree in Russian and East European Studies, and a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Michigan. She has received several Department of Commerce Bronze Medal Awards for her work.
