Seminars at the Census Bureau

The Census Bureau hosts numerous seminars throughout the year on topics that inform the work we do. We often invite outside researchers to share their work. They can bring expertise and perspectives that challenge our researchers in their own work, but their views do not necessarily represent those of the Census Bureau.

Interested persons may attend seminars in person at Census Bureau Headquarters in suburban Maryland if space is available. To attend a seminar, you must register at least 5 days prior Link to a non-federal Web site to the event. Note, non-citizens, must register at least 7 days prior. Note that space is limited, and seminars are subject to cancellation on short notice.

Recent seminars from our various research areas have included the following:

  • "Unpacking and Tracking the Mean Center of Population and the Hoover Index." (Dr. David A. Plane, University of Arizona, Tucson, and Visiting Researcher, Population Distribution Branch, Population Division)

"Summer at Census" Program

The "Summer at Census" program brings in recognized scholars in statistics, social and behavioral survey methodology, statistical computing, or closely related areas for short-term visits. Scholars engage in collaborative research with Census Bureau researchers and staff on problems of data collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination, and present a seminar based on their work.
