Census Bureau to Host Educational Webinar to Provide Insights on Upcoming Quality Metrics Release

Press Release Number CB21-CN.26


Affirming its commitment to data quality and transparency, the U.S. Census Bureau plans for the first time to release a number of data quality indicators along with the first results from the 2020 Census.

These metrics are scheduled for release later this month and will provide information on the status of addresses in the census and how we resolved addresses across each of the data collection modes.

The Census Bureau will hold a technical webinar to give more insight on these initial 2020 Census data quality metrics.

While this webinar will not include any 2020 Census data, it will give a preview of the type and meaning behind the data quality metrics that will be available in the coming months.

A live media Q&A session will immediately follow the webinar.
