Defending Democracy

July 24 — Written by: Ron Jarmin, Deputy Director, United States Census Bureau — Over my career at the U.S. Census Bureau, I’ve always been impressed by the determined commitment to data confidentiality and security shown by every member of our team. We know how important the data we produce are to communities, businesses, organizations and the public. We also know that we cannot deliver world-class data if people and businesses do not feel comfortable sharing their information with us.  Therefore, we do everything we can to protect the information we receive so the public is confident responding to our censuses and surveys.
