The Chicago Regional Office is responsible for all data collection, data dissemination, and geographic operations under the current service area boundaries.
States within the Chicago Region's service area include Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin.
Regional offices play a critical role in getting the U.S. Census Bureau's message out to the community. In support of the censuses and surveys, the regional offices' staff serve as contacts for local media, meet with local organizations to improve participation in censuses and surveys, and host workshops to teach the public about the use and value of the Census Bureau's data.
The Detroit and Kansas City Regional Offices closed in late 2012 and transferred responsibility for specific states to the Chicago Region.
We remain committed to exceeding the high standards required by the Census Bureau to deliver excellent customer service.
