All about the U.S. Census Bureau 

The U.S. Census Bureau provides current facts and figures about America's people, places, and economy. While we're best known for the decennial census (or census of population and housing taken every 10 years), we also conduct more than 130 censuses and surveys of households and businesses across the nation each year. Our work provides the data used for decision making by businesses, city planners, non-profit organizations, students and more. The Census Bureau's mission is to serve as the nation's leading provider of quality data about its people and economy and invite you to visit to explore our current and past offerings. 

COVID-19 Interactive Data Hub 

The U.S. Census Bureau, in collaboration with multiple federal agencies, is in a unique position to produce data on the social and economic effects of coronavirus on American households. This session will provide an overview of the Household Pulse Survey, Small Business Pulse Survey, Community Resilience Estimates, and other Census Bureau programs that were stood up during 2020 to help users understand the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. The session will also include a demo of the COVID19 Interactive HUB   , a platform built to make access to these and other key programs easier for users who are unfamiliar with Census data.
