Public Data Users Request 

News from the Association of Public Data Users:

Census Project Requests Examples of ACS Uses 

The Census Project is compiling examples of what American Community Survey data mean to you and your organization. They are requesting 500-700 word summaries of data uses, including the consequences of the loss of ACS data for your organization and the communities that your organization serves. The deadline for submission of these short "case studies" is Tuesday, June 5. Case studies should be forwarded (with your contact information) to Brendan Nichols. The Census Project will assemble the case studies and then distribute them to key policymakers.

The Association of Public Data Users has also been curating a list of ACS Uses and Users. Access the list here.
