Memo on 2020 Census Data Distortion

Aside Posted on

New from Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at University of Virginia
Memo on 2020 Census Data Distortion
Differential privacy is a new mathematical procedure devised by the Census Bureau that will be applied to the 2020 Census data before it is released to enhance data privacy protection. Our analysis indicates that data accuracy at the sub-state level will be sacrificed as a result of this new approach to data release. This inaccuracy may lead to misallocation of funds, poor capacity for planning, substandard service provision, and a competitive disadvantage in economic and workforce development.

To facilitate comparisons between the original and differentially private 2010 data, we provide both versions joined together in a simplified format through the links below.
