I’D LOVE TO HEAR IF YOU HAVE ANY FEEDBACK FROM THE PUBLISHING OF THE PROTOTYPES FROM THE REDISTRICTING FILE THEMSELVES THE DISSEMINATION PLAN FOR THE 2010 DATA PROJECT YOU METHED THE WORKSHOP — MENTIONED THE WORKSHOP I DIDN’T CONNECT THE TWO PIECES I THINK THAT’S HELPFUL BUT OBVIOUSLY ONLY SOME PEOPLE WILL BE AT THE WORKSHOP SO THINKING ABOUT SOME YOU’LL SEE THROUGHOUT THE PRESENTATION A LOT OF MY FOCUS IS ON GETTING THE WORD OUT TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF USERS SO THINKING ABOUT OTHER ACADEMICS OR OTHER PEOPLE AROUND THE COUNTRY THAT CAN’T ATTEND THE WORKSHOP IN PERSON NOT EVERYONE IS IN D.C I THINK IT’S HARD TO COMMENT ON THE TIMETABLE WHEN IT’S LIKE EVERYTHING WILL BE EXPLORED ON THE FS1 AND OTHER PIECES HARDER I THINK PEOPLE WILL BE INTERESTED IN SEEING THAT I SAW LIKE LAST TIME THE SF1 WAS RELEASED A MONTH AFTER THE DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILES IN 2010 THE IDEA IT WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY LONGER IF IT’S SIX MONTHS LATER OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, GETTING PEOPLE PREPPED FOR DATA LATER THAN THEY EXPECT PEOPLE PLAN WAY IN PREPARING THE DATA IF YOU EXPECT THE RELEASES TO BE MUCH LATER THAT WOULD BE GOOD TO KNOW EARLIER THAN LATER BUT I THINK THE PROTOTYPE FILES ARE FANTASTIC AND IN THE END, PEOPLE WANT IT KNOW HOW IS THIS AFFECTING WHAT I NEED TO DO SIMILAR TO THE SAME MESSAGES WE HEARD IN THE OUTREACH PIECE, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE 2020 CENSUS BUT WANT TO KNOW HOW IT AFFECTS MY COMMUNITY OR MY NEEDS AND WORK SO I THINK THE LIST YOU HAD ON THE PIECE IS GREAT I WAS DISAPPOINTED TO SEE IT’S STILL REALLY ACADEMIC FOCUSSED AND MAYBE YOU’VE DONE OUTREACH AND MAYBE YOU COULDN’T LIST EVERYONE THAT’S TOTALLY POSSIBLE I THINK WE SAW THERE WAS A COMMENT LETTER FROM THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF AMERICAN INDIANS I WAS PLEASED TO SEE THE TRIBAL CONSULTATIONS GOING FORWARD AND I THINK IT WILL BE A DIFFICULT TASK I’VE HAD EXPERIENCE IN THE SHORT COMINGS OF THE TRIBAL DATA THAT EXIST ALREADY I THINK IT WILL NEED TO HAVE A LOT OF CONVERSATION AND OTHER CONSTITUENCIES CAN HELP CHIME IN ON THE IMPACTS OF THE FEWER TABS ON THE RACE AND ETHNICITY PIECES BUT SOME OF THIS TOO WE RECOMMENDED ANALYSIS OF THE FEDERAL REGISTER ABOUT WHO YOU GOT ANSWERS FROM SO WHETHER THESE FOLKS WERE ADEQUATELY REPRESENTED IN A FEDERAL REGISTER PROCESS WHICH IS NOT REALLY INCLUSIVE SOME WILL FOLLOW THAT PIECE WE HEARD A LOT YESTERDAY ABOUT YOUR REALLY EXTENSIVE CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM AND THE PARTNERSHIP WITH 20,000 GROUPS IN THINKING ABOUT THE DISSEMINATION STRATEGY AND HOW TO LEVERAGE THE GREAT WORK ON THE OUTREACH TO GET FEEDBACK ON THE PRODUCTS IT SEEMS IT’S BEING HANDLED SEPARATELY IN SILOS BUT ALL THOSE PEOPLE — A SUBSET OF THOSE PEOPLE HONESTLY INTERESTED IN OUTREACH WILL ALSO BE INTERESTED IN USING THE DATA YOU HAVE THE LIST ALREADY AND THEY’RE LISTENING TO YOU ALREADY IN A FRIENDLY TRUSTED WAY IT’S SEEMS LIKE A READY MADE VEHICLE TO GET THAT OUT I KNOW THE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS HAVE A LOT OF ON THEIR PLATE BUT USING THE DISSEMINATION SPECIALISTS PLATFORMS OR OTHER PIECES TO DO THAT OUTREACH BECAUSE WE KNOW PARTNERSHIP PIECES — THE PARTNERSHIP REPRESENTATION IS MUCH MORE DIVERSE THAN THE FOLKS THAT WOULD WATCH THE LIVE STREAM, FOR EXAMPLE I ALSO THINK — WELL, I’LL SKIP THAT TO GO ON TO SPECIFICS AND IN THINKING ABOUT THE SPECIFICS ONLY A SMALL TABLE WERE NOT INCLUDED THE NOS I WOULD RECOMMEND CHANGES ON THE

SPREAD SHEET I’LL SEND YOU SEPARATELY ONE FOR EXAMPLE ABOUT WHETHER THE TABLE IS AVAILABLE ON ACS SO I THINK ONE OF THE QUESTIONS IS WHERE ELSE CAN I GET THIS DATA FOR PEOPLE LOOKING AT IT IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF THERE’S A COMPARABLE TABLE ON ACS AND I DIDN’T DO THE CROSSWALK BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO GO SOME OF THESE I ALSO RECOGNIZE MAY BE SOLVED, REPRESENTED IN FUTURE DATA PRODUCTS WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YET SEEING WHICH ONES WERE DIFFICULT TO PRODUCE UNDER THE NEW SYSTEM GAVE FORESHADOWING OF THE ISSUES YOU’LL BE FACING WHEN WE SEE THE PROPOSED TABLES AND IN SF1 THERE’S OFTEN TABLES ON OWN CHILDREN, RELATED CHILDREN AND ALL CHILDREN SO OBVIOUSLY FOLKSED THERE WE HEARD A LOT YESTERDAY ABOUT HOW THE INCREASE COMPLEXITY OF FAMILY TYPES SO HAVING LESS INFORMATION ABOUT THAT MAY HAVE IMPLICATIONS FOR THOSE SERVING CHILDREN OR ANALYZING THE DEMOGRAPHERS AND PEOPLE CAN SPEAK UP ABOUT WHAT THEY KNOW ABOUT CHANGING FAMILY STRUCTURE AND THE HOUSEHOLD TYPE BY RELATIONSHIP FOR PEOPLE 65 YEARS AND OVER I WAS THINKING ABOUT THE MASSIVE CONCERN ABOUT ELDER CARE AND HOME HEALTH NEEDS AND HOW THAT MIGHT EFFECT PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT THE SENIOR SERVICES FROM A CITY PERSPECTIVE, FOR EXAMPLE SO FOR EVERY ONE CAUGHT — CUT OUT ANOTHER ONE HAD AGES THREE TO FOUR PULLED OUT SO PEOPLE INTERESTED IN SCHOOL READINESS THE COMBINATIONS VALENTINE — THE COMBINATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE AND WE KNOW LESS ABOUT RACIAL DISPARITIES AND CONDITIONS FOR RACIAL GROUPS AND I UNDERSTOOD ON THE LAST ONE WE JUST NEEDED TO UPDATE THE 2010 METHODOLOGY AND IT NEEDED TO BE UPDATED ON THE DOCUMENTATION AND SPREAD SHEET I KNOW YOUR HEAD IS IN THE STATS AND DOCUMENTATION BUT THE COMMUNICATIONS PLANNING SHOULD BE VALUED THE DATA USER GROUP SHOULD BE VALUED AND YOU CAN LEVERAGE WHAT’S BEEN DONE AROUND PRIVACY AND WA WE KNOW FROM CBAM THAT PEOPLE VALUE YOU ARE BUILDING THIS ON A REASON THAT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY SAID THEY VALUE AROUND THE PRIVACY OF INFORMATION IT’S JUST REALLY HARD I CAN IMAGINE IT WILL BE HARD TO FOLLOW THIS IS MORE LIKE WHAT I WOULD WANT FROM MY CONSTITUENCY SOME EASY PAGE LIKE THE INFORMATION ABOUT DAIT — DATA PRODUCT THERE AND THE MEMOS LIKE 57 PIECES DOWN THAT ARE REALLY COMPLICATED WAS HARD TO FIND EVEN FINDING THE P.O. TECHNICAL APPLICATION FILE TOOK TIME FOR ME WHEN I HAD THE TITLE GENERALLY BEING MORE TRANSPARENT AND PUTTING THINGS IN AN EASIER ACCESS FORMAT WOULD BE HELPFUL AND I’M MAINLY THINKING AHEAD FOR YOU I KNOW THERE’S BEEN SOME COMMUNICATIONS AROUND DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY BUT THINKING ABOUT JUST A BLOG ABOUT THESE ARE REALLY HARD THERE’S GOING TO BE TRADE-OFFS AND THESE ARE HARD WITH RELEASES OF THE DHC OR OTHERS, I THINK BRINGING THAT INTO THE CONVERSATION FOR USERS IS PRETTY UNDERSTANDABLE THE TRADE-OFF I WOULD BE UP FRONT WITH THE USERS ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE FACING I THINK I DID TRY TO FIND STUFF ON THE 2020 CENSUS RESEARCH OPERATIONAL PLANS AND OVERSIGHT WHICH IS WHERE I THINK THE PRODUCTS

PAGE SHOULD BE RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING IS TOO VARIED TO SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS IS THE ACTUAL DATA FILE THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE USERS AREN’T EVEN THINKING ABOUT THE 2020 DATA YET, RIGHT? SO TRYING TO GET IT ON THEIR MINDS NOW SO THEY’RE NOT SURPRISED WHEN THE DATA COMES OUT AND THEY’RE FAVORITE TABLE’S MISSING I THINK THE LAYOUT OF YOUR SLIDE EARLIER ABOUT THE INPUTS YOU’RE USING WERE HELPFUL I WANTED TO MORE NOT JUST THE INPUTS BUT SOME SYNTHESIS FROM THIS LIKE WHAT CAUSED YOU TO NOT DO THE TABLES YOU HAD? WAS IT JUST METHOD LOGICAL IT DIDN’T WORK OR NO ONE ACCESSED THE TABLE ON FACT FINDER OR YOU DIDN’T GET A USE CASE IN THE FEDERAL REGISTER SO YOU HAVE THE EVIDENCE TO SAY THIS TABLE CAN BE CUT WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS? I WANTED MORE WITH THE REASONING AND I SAW THE KIDS COUNT PUBLIC COMMENT THAT CAME THROUGH PEOPLE ARE FRAYED ALL THE DATA’S — ARE AFRAID ALL THE DATA’S GOING TO BE TAKEN OUT SO AS MUCH RATIONALE WE CAN PROVIDE TO SHOW IT’S EVIDENCE-DRIVEN AND DESCRIBING THE INPUT IN SOME LAY FORMAT WOULD BE HELPFUL AND HOW YOU’RE MAKING DECISIONS AND AS YOU DO MAKE DECISIONS, SOME OF WHAT YOU’RE THOUGHT PROCESS WERE IF YOU COULD AND I DID THIS PLUG BEFORE BUT WE MADE A CHANGING FROM THE LONG FORM TO THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY VARE — SURVEY WAS A WRENCHING PROCESS FOR PEOPLE ON THE GROUND AND MANY HERE LIVED THROUGH THE PAIN AND SUFFERING WE KNOW HOW TO DO THIS THE ACS USER GROUP AS A DISSEMINATION PIECE IN THINKING ABOUT POST RELEASE HOW YOUR GOING TO SHARE THIS WITH USERS AND GUIDANCE WOULD BE HELPFUL BECAUSE I FOUND THEM HELPFUL DURING THAT FORMER PROCESS WHEN WE WERE DOING THE ADJUSTMENTS I’M COMING OUT OBVIOUSLY THE CENSUS IS IMPORTANT FOR REPRESENTATION AND FUNDING BUT FIND OUGHT MORE ABOUT OUR — FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT OUR COMMUNITIES IS THE FUN PART I ENJOYED GOING THE WORK SO THANK YOU AND I DON’T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO COMMENT BUT I’M SURE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE QUESTIONS TOO >> THANK YOU, CARTH — KATHRYN FOR GREAT COMMENTS AND I’LL TRY TO RESPOND TO ONE SET AND CYNTHIA CAN RESPOND TO THE OTHER SET YOUR FIRST POINT YOU MENTIONED THE LARGE SET OF INPUT AND LARGE AMOUNT OF INPUTS AND THE HARD DECISIONS WE HAD TO MAKE TO THE INPUT WE RECEIVED COMBINED WITH OUR OWN SUBJECT MATTER KNOWLEDGE SUPPORTS THE IDEA ONCE YOU MOVE BEYOND A LEGALLY MANDATED PRODUCT THERE’S IMPORTANT USES FOR THE OTHER TABLES WE PROVIDE WE WENT THROUGH THE HIT RATES FROM INTERNET PAGES AND WE RECEIVED DATA FROM UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA’S NIGIS AND THEY GAVE US DATA ON TABLES THEY MAINTAIN WE WENT THROUGH THAT AND TRIED TO FIND ACTIONABLE DIFFERENCES IN HIT RATES IT’S HARD BECAUSE EVERY FILE PROGRESSES THROUGH THE TOTAL POPULATION FILES GET A LOT MORE HITS AND GO INTO DETAILS DON’T WANT TO DISCOUNT THE SMALL NUMBER OF HITS FOR THE DETAILED POPULATIONS BECAUSE THEY’RE IMPORTANT FOR THE GROUPS AS WE WORK THROUGH AND KNOW WE HAVE THE PL THAT’S MANDATED AND LOOK HOW LONG TO FORMULATE THE PHC, A NATIONAL BREAK EMERGED BASED MORE ON THE RISK EACH VARIABLE PRESENTED FROM THE DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE

PERSPECTIVE THAT CREATED A DISTINCTION FROM WHAT WE CAN SUPPORT AND THE DHC WHAT YOU SEE IN THE SPECIFICATION AND WHAT HAD TO BE MOVED TO OTHER PRODUCTS IN THE FIRST SET OF TABLES THERE WERE SMALL CHANGES MADE AND YOU CAN SEE THE USES WERE LOWER AND WE DIDN’T KNOW THE GOOD USE DATA AND FOR THE MOST PART YES, THE METHODOLOGY WAS PUSHING TO MORE COMPLEX TABLES INTO THE LATER PRODUCTS WE COULD STILL MAINTAIN ACCURACY FOR THE FIRST SET OF PRODUCTS AND WORK ON OTHER PRODUCTS AS WELL AND I CAN ADDRESS ONE OF YOUR OTHER COMMENTS WITH THE INCREASING COMPLEXITY OF FAMILY TYPES AS WE WORKED THROUGH THIS, IT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN IN PREVIOUS DECADE WHERE WE PRODUCED DATA AND PROTECTED AND HAVE YOU ALL THE VARIABLES TO WORK WITH AND FORMULATE THE TABLES THE WAY YOU WANTED TO LATE IN THE PROCESS WITH DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY YOU HAVE TO BUILD IF YOU WANT A TABLE WITH AGE AND HOUSEHOLDS OF A PARTICULAR AGE YOU HAVE TO BUILD THAT IN THE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM UP FRONT BECAUSE YOU LOSE THE CONNECTION WEN MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS THAT’S SOMETHING WE HAD TO CONTEND WITH AND THE OTHER TABLES WILL BE PART OF ANOTHER DIFFERENTLY PRIVATE SOLUTION TRYING TO GO THROUGH I WROTE A LOT OF NOTES FROM YOUR COMMENTS AND YOU COVERED A LOT OF GROUND I THINK THE TIMING OF THE DHC WILL BE WHAT YOU FALL IN FOR THE SF1 BECAUSE IT’S THE SAME DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM WILL PROTECT THE PRODUCT AND DLC TABLES WITH THAT I’LL LET CYNTHIA TALK ABOUT THE OUTREACH ASPECTS OF YOUR COMMENTS >> THANKS, JASON THANK YOU, KATHRYN FOR YOUR COMMENT ONE THING I SHOULD HAVE POINT THE OUT ABOUT THE PLANNED WORKSHOP IS WE DO PLAN TO WEBCAST IT LIVE FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT ATTEND IN PERSON THEY CAN STILL EXPERIENCE THE WORKSHOP ALSO, WITH THE FACT WE’RE GRABBING THIS PLANNING COMMITTEE IS VARIOUS BACKGROUNDS SO THEY KNOW WHO THEIR PEOPLE ARE AND WHO THEY SHOULD GO TO AND THEIR CONSTITUENCIES THAT WAS THE POINT OF GRABBING THE GROUP AND WE SHOULD BE REPRESENTATIVE AND JASON POINTED OUT WITH THE RELEASE SCHEDULE WE’RE TRYING AS BEST AS WE CAN TO KEEP THE SAME RELEASE SCHEDULE AS WE DID IN 2010 AT LEAST FOR THE PL BECAUSE WE MANDATE IT AND OF COURSE METADATA AND FOR THE DHC AS WE CONTINUE TO FINALIZE THE METHODOLOGY FOR THE REMAINING PRODUCTS, OUR GOAL IS TO TRY TO STICK TO THE SCHEDULE WE’VE HAD IN THE PAST AS BEST AS POSSIBLE BUT WE WILL BE TRANSPARENT ABOUT THAT AND BE VERY OPEN AND COMMUNICATE THAT THE OTHER THING I JUST WANTED TO TOUCH ON IS YES, WE DO OUTREACH AND TALK TO VARIOUS GROUPS WHEN YOU MENTION THE ACS USER’S GROUP WE HAVE A LEAD-IN WITH THE POPULATION BUREAU AND WE WORK CLOSELY WITH THEM AND PROVIDE INFORMATION AND GAIN FEEDBACK AND WE’RE TRYING TO AS WE COMPLETE THE DETAILS OF HOW TO GET INPUT BASED ON THIS RELEASE, WE WILL INCLUDE THAT GROUP TOO SO THEY CAN GET THAT INFORMATION OUT TO THE USERS GROUP >> GREAT WE’LL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS I JUST WANT TO ECHO WHAT CATHY SAID THIS IS THE KIND OF THING JUST FREAKING PEOPLE OUT THE MODEL OF HOW YOU ALL DID IT WAS BRILLIANT THOSE USERS GUIDES ARE FANTASTIC I LOVE THEY’RE SPECIFIC BY AUDIENCE INCREDIBLY HELPFUL I WANT TO ECHO THAT RECOMMENDATION FROM HER PUSH — MICHELLE >> THIS IS RICHELLE WINKLER THANKS FOR THE DETAILED

PRESENTATION I LOVE ALL THE TABLES THAT YOU PROVIDE AND YOU’RE DOING WORK ON A DIFFICULT TOPIC SO THANK YOU.D AND YOU’RE DOING WORK ON A DIFFICULT TOPIC SO THANK YOU I HAVE A COUPLE QUESTIONS ONE IS EASY TO ANSWER REGARDING THE RESEARCH DATA CENTERS AND RDCs AND WONDERING IF THE FULL DATA OR HOW IS DAS GOING TO BE IMPLEMENTED IN SETTINGS LIKE THAT WILL PEOPLE STILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS DATA AT THE CENTERS MY OTHER QUESTION, YOU TALKED ABOUT A LITTLE BIT IN THE PRESENTATION MORE THAN I SAW IN THE MATERIALS PROVIDED AHEAD OF TIME ABOUT PUMS I WAS HOPING YOU COULD TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT MAYBE ANY TIMETABLES FOR WHEN THOSE FILES MIGHT BE RELEASED IT SOUNDED LIKE INDIVIDUALS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO BE NESTED WITHIN HOUSEHOLDS I WANTED TO UNDERSTAND THAT A LITTLE BIT BETTER AND YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING IN THE PRESENTATION ABOUT SOME OF THE VARIABLES MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN THE PUM FILE AND SO I JUST LIKE TO HEAR A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL ON THAT THANK YOU >> LET ME START WITH THE FRDC QUESTION AT THE MOMENT, RESEARCH IN THE SFRDCs CANNOT ACCESS THE CENSUS EVIDENCE FILE FROM 2010 IT ACCESSES THE VERSE — VERSION PREPARED KNOWN AS THE 100% DETAIL FILE WHICH HAS HAD DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE APPLIED TO IT WE HAVE A CONTINUING COMMITMENT TO MAKE THE RESOURCES OF THE CENSUS BUREAU AVAILABLE IN SFRDCs BUT DON’T AT THE MOMENT HAVE THE EQUIVALENT FOR THE 2020 SEF WE’LL HAVE TO EXPERIMENT WITH THE METHOD BY WHICH THE 2020 CENSUS WILL BE EDITED THAT’S NOT A NO BUT SITTING THERE WITH A PUBLIC USE MICRO SAMPLE WHICH IS WHERE I’LL GO NEXT TECHNOLOGY BEING USED TO DO ALL THE PRODUCTS, JASON AND CYNTHIA JUST DISCUSSED IS THE TOP-DOWN ALGORITHM WHICH WAS THE FIRST PRODUCTION ALGORITHM FOR PRIVACY IN THE 2020 CENSUS ENHANCED TO COVER SEPARATELY TABLE HOUSING UNITS AND PERSONS THE SCIENCE DIDN’T EXIST AT THE TIME WE DEVELOPED THE PRODUCTION ALGORITHMS TO DO PERSONS WITHIN HOUSEHOLDS OR DO DETAILED RACE AND ETHNICITY AT THE TIME THESE PRODUCTS THEY JUST DISCUSSED WERE ISOLATED FROM THE BULK OF THE OTHER PRODUCTS, WE WERE WORKING WITH PRODUCTION SYSTEM OR BASICALLY A BETA PRODUCTION SYSTEM, LET’S BE HONEST, WITH A KNOWN SCIENTIFIC SOLUTION SINCE THEN, PEER METHOD SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS FOR DETAILED RACE AND ETHNICITY AND FOR JOIN TABLES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED AND WE HAVE READ A CONTRACT TO USE THE SYSTEMS TO DEVELOP THE SYSTEMS JASON AND CYNTHIA TALKING ABOUT OUTSIDE OF DHC WE CAN’T PROVIDE MORE DETAILS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T EXAMINED SAMPLES BUT THE INTERNAL TEAM IS FAMILIAR WITH THE SCIENCE THAT UNDERLIES THOSE AG RIMS AND — ALGORITHMS AND NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT BUT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A SYSTEM KNOWN AS ECFLO AND PRIV SEQUAL SOLVES THE JOIN PROBLEM BUT IT DOES SO BY REQUIRING THE ANALYST SPECIFY A SLIGHTLY MORE DETAILED VERSION OF THE DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY POLICY APPLY TO THE TABLES SO OUR OWN ANALYST NEEDS SOME EXPERIENCE IN DOING THAT BEFORE THEY CAN GET COMFORTABLE WITH THE OUTPUT IN ADDITION, NEITHER OF THAT TECHNOLOGY DOES NOT DELIVER MICRODATA TO A TABULATION SYSTEM SO WE HAD TO AGREE RELAX THE ASSUMPTION AND REQUIREMENT THE SYSTEM HAD TO PRODUCE MICRO DATA IT WILL PRODUCE THE TABLES THAT ARE REQUESTED SO NOW WE NEED A

PUBLICATION ENGINE THAT CAN DISSEMINATE THE TABLES WITHOUT PASSING THEM THROUGH OUR OWN TABULATION ENGINE THAT’S ALSO A COMPONENT OF THE CONTRACT WE JUST LED WE HAVE MADE CONSIDERABLE PROGRESS BUT APPROPRIATELY ARE NOT ABLE TO GIVE THIS COMMITTEE OR ANYONE ELSE SPECIFICS ABOUT THAT UNTIL THE CONTRACTS HAVE TO START FIRST AND THEY HAVEN’T STARTED YET AND THE WORK PRODUCT HAS TO BE DELIVERED AND REVIEWED BY THE PEOPLE INSIDE THE CENSUS BUREAU RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT AND THEN CAN BEGIN DISCUSSING IT PROBABLY THAT’S A LONGER ANSWER THAN I THINK YOU WERE EXPECTING BUT I THINK THIS COMMITTEE IN PARTICULAR NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PLAN IS IN SOME DETAIL AND I HOPE THAT WAS HELPFUL >> THIS IS RICHELLE YES, THANK YOU FOR THE DETAIL THE BIG PICTURE I TAKE AWAY FROM IT IS YOU HAVE BIG PLANS AND THEY’RE IN THE PROCESS >> JUAN PABLO >> THANK YOU, CYNTHIA AND JASON FOR YOUR PRESENTATION I HAD A SUGGESTION TO TRY TO EXPAND THE SET OF USERS IN THE FUTURE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DECENNIAL AND VISIBILITY THE CENSUS WILL HAVE THIS COMING YEAR TO DO THAT I THINK ONE WAY THAT CAN BE DONE IS TO THINK OF ALL THE GROWTH AND DATA SCIENCE AND ANALYTICS AND INFORMATION, VISUALIZATION ACADEMIC PROGRAMS AND COURSES OUT THERE NOW THESE ARE TYPICALLY THE TEXTBOOKS USED AND THE PEOPLE WHO TEACH THOSE COURSES ARE TYPICALLY NOT FAMILIAR WITH CENSUS DATA BUT I THINK CENSUS DATA IS IDEAL FOR THOSE COURSES AND VERY INTERESTING IT’S FREE DATA THERE’S A LOT OF DATA AND I THINK IT MAY BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND THE SET OF PEOPLE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH CONSISTENCY DATA PRODUCTS AND MAKE THEM APPRECIATE THEM AND HOPEFULLY USE THEM LATER IN WAYS THEY HAVEN’T BEEN USED IT’S NOT A MUST BUT AN INTERESTING OPPORTUNITY >> I’M ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR FOR COMMUNICATIONS WE FIND IT TO BE AN EXCITING AND INTERESTING OPPORTUNITY WE WENT OVER THE INTEGRATION COMMUNICATIONS CONTRACT YESTERDAY AND I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A SEPARATE SLIDE BUT WE HAVE A DATA DISSEMINATION PLAN WE’LL BE STARTING NOW AND REVIEWING GOING FORWARD WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING THOSE DETAILS WITH THE COMMITTEE IN THE FUTURE AND WE SEE THE OPPORTUNITY TOO AND PLAN A ROBUST PLAN TO REACH OUT AND ARE LOOKING AT CENSUS DATA >> KEN SIMONSON FOLLOWING ON CATHY’S RECOMMENDATION I RECOMMEND CYNTHIA YOU INCLUDE THE HOUSING STATISTICS USERS GROUP THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOME BUILDERS HOSTS ANNUALLY THEY GET TOGETHER TRADE ASSOCIATIONS AND RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS HARVARD JOINT CENTER FOR HOUSING STATISTICS >> CHRIS >> CHRIS MOORE I’M REAL INTERESTED IN DATA ABOUT CHILDREN AND YOUTH IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S QUITE PROMISING AGE BREAK AND I’M NOT IMMEDIATELY FAMILIAR WITH TABLE A1 I WANTED TO FOLLOW ON THE CROSS TO BE — TABULATIONS IT LOOKS LIKE THEY’LL BE PROVIDED AND WONDERING AT WHAT LEVEL OF GEOGRAPHY IT WILL GO DOWN TO IT WAS SLIDE 22 >> SO THIS IS A LATER TABLE BUT YOU ASKED ABOUT SINGLE YEAR OF AGE UP TO A BLOCK LEVEL TABLE UP

TO AGE 20 AND SINGLE YEAR OF AGE AT THE TRACK LEVEL >> AND THEY LOOK LIKE COUNT DATA THEY’RE NOT BY ADDITIONAL VARIABLE >> THE TABLES ARE THE ONES IT RATED BY THE RACE GROUPS >> SO THERE WILL BE CROSS TABULATIONS WITH THESE CATEGORIES LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, FAMILY STRUCTURE >> NOT IN THE CURRENT VERSION OF THE DHC RIGHT NOW NO, THEY DO NOT EXIST AND WE’RE WORKING ON THE DETAILS OF RACE AND FAMILY HOUSEHOLD JOINED >> THE 5522 — 522, CAN YOU SAY MORE ABOUT WHAT IT IS IT LOOKS GOOD >> IT’S DIFFICULT TO RECALL THE DETAILS OF OUR TABLES BUT THIS TABLE SHOW IT BY AGE ALONE AND THIS IS ONE OF THE SETS OF ABLES REITERATED BY RACE IT’S ONE OF THE IDEAS OF PROVIDING THE SPECIFICATIONS AND WHAT WE PROVIDED IN THE SPECIFICATION IS WHAT WE’RE PROPOSING THIS IS WHAT IT WAS IN 2010 THAT PROVIDES WHAT WE’RE PROPOSING FOR 2020 IF YOU HAVE TABLES ABOUT HOW TO INTERPRET THE DETAILED TABLES WHEN THEY’RE LAID OUT, IF YOU FOLLOW UP WITH US WE CAN PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION >> THERE’S A BLOCK LEVEL WITH AGE UP TO 20 YEARS OF AGE >> JOHN >> JOHN CZAJKA WILL THEY BE RELEASED BASED ON ONE EPSILON VALUE? IS THAT DETERMINED? >> THIS IS CYNTHIA YES, THEY’LL BE RELEASED AT ONE EPSILON VALUE AND WE’RE IN THE PROCESS OF DETERMINING WHAT THAT VALUE WILL BE IT WILL BE DECIDED ON AS A POLICY DECISION ONCE THAT IS DONE, WE’LL RELEASE THAT INFORMATION AS PART OF OUR DECISION MEMO BUT IT WILL ONLY BE ONE EPSILON VALUE >> THANK YOU >> I HAD A QUESTION ON THE GROUP QUARTERS DATA FOR THE REDISTRICTING YOU DIDN’T HAVE THE BREAKOUT SO IT MEANT ALL THE POPULATIONS WOULD BE INCLUDED BUT WITH THE BLOCK STATES CAN CHOOSE TO INCLUDE OR EXCLUDE THEM AS THEY SEE FIT IS THAT WHAT THAT MEANS? >> I MISSED THAT QUESTION CAN YOU REPEAT IT, PLEASE >> I KNOW I TALK FAST THE GROUP QUARTERS DATA IN THE REDISTRICTING FILE, YOU NOW HAVE A BREAKOUT ON THAT SO PREVIOUSLY I’M ASSUMING THAT MEANS ALL THOSE POPULATIONS WERE IN THOSE COUNTS? NOW STATES CAN CHOOSE TO INCLUDE THEM OR EXCLUDE THEM >> I’LL TAKE THAT ONE WHAT HAPPENED IN 2010 IS THAT PARTICULAR TABLE WAS PRODUCED IN A PUBLICATION AND YOU CAN FIND IT ON THE 2010 FULL PAGE CALLED THE ADVANCED GROUP QUARTERS TABULATION IT WAS PRODUCED AND STATES USED THAT ADVANCED GROUP QUARTERS TABULATION OVER THE COURSE OF THE DECADE THE REDISTRICTING OFFICE IN ITS NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STATE LEGISLATURES ASK THAT BE INCLUDED DIRECTLY IN THE PL94 PACKAGE IT’S THE SAME TABLE DONE IN 2010 IT’S JUST NOW MOVED FROM A SPECIAL PUBLICATION THE ADVANCED GROUP QUARTERS TABULATION INTO THE PL94 AND IT’S EXACTLY THE SAME TABLE LAYOUT

>> SO IT’S NOT REALLY A CHANGE BUT BY HAVING THE BREAKOUT STATES CAN INCLUDE OR EXCLUDE AS THEY SEE FIT? >> IT’S IMPORTANT TO EMPHASIZE CENSUS BUREAU UNDER PUBLIC LAW 74171 PROVIDES DATA TO THE STATES IT DOESN’T MAKE DECISIONS HOW THE DATA WILL BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDISTRICTING >> I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE FUNCTIONALITY I’M A LITTLE SLOW I WAS JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE FUNCTIONALITY IT SEEMS LIKE THE ANSWER’S YES? >> IN TERMS OF FUNCTIONALITY IT’S IDENTICAL >> TOMMY, DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION? >> TOMMY WRIGHT I I USED TO WORK WITH TRANSPORTATION TABLES AND SO ARE USERS WEIGHTED TO THESE TABLES AND EVERYBODY’S LOOKING AT THE SAME THING AT THE SAME TIME SO THAT COULD BE AN ADVANTAGE BUT DOES A USER SAY I WANT ACCESS TO EVERYTHING EVERYTHING AND EVERY RESPONSE AND I WANT TO FORM MY OWN TABLES ARE YOU FEELING THIS IN THE FEDERAL REGISTRY NOTICE DO WE THINK OF THIS IN THE FUTURE AND WITH THE DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY AND PROTECTION WOULD TO BE ACCOMMODATE THESE THINGS WHAT DO USERS REALLY WANT? ARE THEY FOCUSSED ON THESE TABLES BECAUSE WE’VE BEEN HISTORICALLY PRODUCING HE’S TABLES DOES ANYONE SAY I WANT TO GET TO THE DATA AS MUCH AS I CAN? THEY HAVE TO LEARN HOW THE TABLES ARE PRESENTED AS WE SAID, THIS IS VERY PAINFUL SO CAN THE USER COME TO A WEBSITE AND SAY I WANT IN PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY THE NUMBER OF MALES OVER 32 EMPLOYED AS ENGINEERS FOR EXAMPLE, IT’S IN THE UNDERLYING DATABASE AND IT WOULDN’T BE IN THE DECENNIAL CENSUS BECAUSE OF ENGINEERS BUT ARE USERS STILL TALKING ABOUT THESE TABLES? >> THIS IS RICHELLE I THINK WHAT USERS WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE KIND OF ACCESS YOU TALKED ABOUT YOUR EVERY DAY USERS, THAT’S WHAT WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AND I REMEMBER YEARS AGO THERE, I WORKED AT A STATE DATA CENTER AND WE HAD ACCESS TO A NICE WEBSITE TO CREATE OUR CROSS TABS IT’S NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND I DON’T REMEMBER THE DETAILS ABOUT IT BUT I USED THAT ALL THE TIME BECAUSE IT WAS STUFF THAT WASN’T IN THE PUBLISHED TABLES BUT I COULD CREATE CROSS TAB WOULD BE USEFUL TO THE PARTNERS WE’D WORK WITH AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT USERS WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ACCESS TO IF IT WERE AVAILABLE >> TOMMY WRIGHT MAYBE IT’S A VISION OF SOME SORT IN THE FUTURE >> ARE WE AHEAD OF SCHEDULE? THANK YOU, JACK >> TOMMY, WHAT A GREAT THOUGHT I WANT TO JUMP ON THAT WITH WHAT JUAN PABLO WAS SAYING LIKE BACKUP WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A USER RIGHT NOW MY BELIEF IS THAT THAT’S CHANGING IN THE LAST 10 YEARS, OR AT LEAST TODAY, THERE ARE SO MANY MORE DATA SCIENTISTS, ANALYSTS, CALL IT WHATEVER YOU WANT IN BUSINESSES EVERYWHERE AND MY GUT IS THAT AS JUAN PABLO SAID, THEY’RE NOT AWARE OF ALL OF THESE TABLES RIGHT NOW WITH ALL THAT BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE AND PEOPLE WANT ACCESS TO THE DATA, THEY MAY DWARF THE EXISTING USERS YOU’RE USED TO IT MAKE SENSE TO DO WHAT TOMMY SAID AND STEP BACK AND SAY WHO ARE THE USERS OF THE FUTURE AND WHAT ARE THOSE USERS GOING TO WANT BECAUSE I CAN SEE IT AND I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BUSINESS WHERE I WAS I CAN SEE IT IN EVERY PLACE THOSE ARE THE CALLS I GUESS SO I THINK YOU NEED TO THINK AHEAD OF WHO IS THE NEXT USER AND HOW DO YOU GIVE THEM ACCESS TO THE DATA AND WHAT WILL THEY WANT? I’M PRETTY SURE THEY’LL DWARF THE USERS OF 10 YEARS AGO >> I’LL RESPOND TO THE SECOND PART OF TOMMY’S QUESTION WHICH IS HOW COMPATIBLE IS THIS WITH

PRIVACY PROTECTION UNFORTUNATELY THE ANSWER IS IF YOU WANT USERS TO ASK ARBITRARY QUESTIONS THERE’S A MATHEMATICAL PORTION TO THE DATABASE THAT STILL SAYS WE CANNOT ALLOW REASONABLE ACCURACY OF THE DATA SET I’M KUNAL TALWAR AND IT’S POSSIBLE THAT IF THE USER IF WE RESTRICT THE KINDS OF QUESTIONS THE USER CAN, SAY THEY CAN ONLY ASK TWO OR THREE-WAY CROSS TABS WE MAY BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING BUT AS MUCH AS WE’D LIKE TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER ARBITRARY THINGS IT’S INCOMPATIBLE WITH PRIVACY >> JOHN >> SO A COUPLE OF COMMENTS FIRST, RICHELLE THE PRODUCT YOU WERE USING HAD 3 MILLION TABULATED TABLES PRELOADED THROUGH A DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM SO YOU WASHINGTON — WEREN’T MAKING A QUERY ON DEMAND YOU’RE DOING WHAT KUNAL SAID AND IF YOU ASK FOR SOMETHING NOT IN INVENTORY YOU CAN’T HAVE THAT WHAT I WAS GOING TO SUGGEST IS IF THE COMMITTEE WANTS IT, WE SHOULD BRING IN PEOPLE FROM OUR NEW CENTER FOR ENTERPRISE DISSEMINATION INCLUDING THE SET SIDE DISSEMINATION UNIT IN THE FEDERAL BUDGET FOR DEVELOPING NEW METHODS DEFAULT PRODUCTION AND IT’S THE DISSEMINATION METHOD BEGINNING THIS MONTH WITH ACS ONE-YEAR RELEASES AND ECONOMIC CENSUS RELEASES YOU SHOULD GET MORE FAMILIAR WITH IT IT HAS A CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS THAT IS VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT TOMMY LAID OUT AND TO WHAT JACK REFERRED TO AND I THINK TO WHAT YOU WERE DOING THE IDEA IS TO GO TO DATA.CENSUS.gov AND BE ABLE TO ASK A LESS STRUCTURED QUERY THAN GIVE ME TABLE A00135 BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT’S IN IT AND WE’LL STILL HAVE THE API FOR DOING THAT BECAUSE IT’S ANOTHER WAY USERS EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO INTERACT BUT DATA.CENSUS.gov WHICH IS UP SO YOU CAN GO THERE NOW, WAS DESIGNED TO BE MORE USER FRIENDLY AND TO INTERACT ITSELF WITH THE VARIOUS DATA SOURCE INCLUDING THE APIs TO GENERATE CANDIDATE RESPONSES AND ALLOW YOU TO GO THROUGH INCLUDING GEOSPATIAL ANSWERS AS WELL AS TABULAR ANSWERS I THINK IT MAY BE GOOD TO HAVE THIS GROUP SEE SOMETHING IN THE NEXT MOOETD MEETING IF YOU WANT — MEETING IF YOU WANT I’LL OFFER THAT I THINK IT WILL ANSWER MANY QUESTIONS RAISED >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JASON, CYNTHIA AND EVERYONE KATHRYN WE’LL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT SESSION >> I SHOULD SAY DURING THE SESSION WE MIGHT HAVE MIGHT OVERLAP WITH THE PUBLIC COMMENT AT 11:00 WE’LL NOW HEAR FROM JOHN ABOWD AND VICTORIA VELKOFF ON METHODOLOGY AND DEMOGRAPHIC PROGRAMS AND PUBLIC DISCUSSION >> WE’RE GOING TO LEAD WITH A VIDEO I THINK WE’RE READY >> EVERY YEAR WE COUNT EVERY PERSON LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT THEM LIKE AGE, SEX, RACE AND ETHNICITY THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF DOING SURVEYS LIKE THE CENSUS AND OTHER DEMOGRAPHIC SURVEYS IS TO GET AN OVERALL PICTURE OF HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE IN MINNESOTA OR MISSISSIPPI AND HOW DO THEY DIFFER IN DIFFERENT PLACES BY SEX OR RACE? THE RESULTS OF THE U.S. CENSUS

ARE OF POLITICAL RELEVANCE SINCE THEY’RE USED TO DETERMINE THE SEATS STATES GET IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND LEGISLATIVE DISTRICTS FROM CONGRESS TO CITY COUNCILS AND THEY’RE USEFUL FOR UNDERSTANDING OTHER ISSUES THE PROBLEM IS THE CENSUS LIKE OTHER STUDIES IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRIVATE LIKE NO ONE OUTSIDE THE CENSUS BUREAU IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO LOOK AT JUST THE PUBLISHED STATISTIC ABOUT THE DEMOGRAPHIC AND FIGURE OUT THERE’S A WHITE MALE 31-YEAR-OLD WITH KIDS LIVING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD THAT’S ME THE CENSUS BUREAU IS SUPPOSED TO KEEP MY INFORMATION CONFIDENTIAL AND THE INFORMATION OF EVERY PERSON CONFIDENTIAL WHICH IS A TAL ORDER THE SHORT ANSWER, YOU CAN’T THERE’S AN INHERENT TRADE-OFF BETWEEN PUBLISHING SOMETHING YOU LEARN FROM A SURVEY AND MAINTAINING THE PRIVACY OF PARTICIPANTS IT MAY SEEM LIKE YOU CAN JUST REMOVE PEOPLE’S NAMES FROM THE SPREAD SHEETS AND PUBLIC AVERAGES AND TOTALS BUT IT’S EASY TO RECONNECT USING POWERFUL S AND THERE’S A THEOREM THAT INFORMATION RELEASED WILL INHERENTLY VIOLATE THE PRIVACY OF PARTICIPANTS TO SOME DEGREE AND THE MORE INFORMATION THE MORE YOU VIOLATE THE INDIVIDUAL PRIVACY AND HOW DO YOU QUANTIFY LOSS OF PRIVACY AND PROTECT IT? TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO MEASURE PRIVACY IT’S HELPFUL TO LOOK AT HOW SOMEONE WOULD PIECE TOGETHER THE PRIVATE INFORMATION OF THE PEOPLE SURVEYED THEY COULD JUST TRY TO STEAL OR GAIN ACCESS TO THE PRIVATE INFORMATION ITSELF WHICH CAN’T BE PROTECTED AGAINST MATHEMATICALLY THAT REQUIRES PHYSICAL DEFENSES SO WE WON’T CONSIDER IT HERE THE KIND WE CAN DEFEND AGAINST MATHEMATICALLY LOOKS AT PUBLICLY PUBLISHED STATISTICS AND APPLIES BRUTE FORCE COMPUTATIONAL POWER AND SEE WHICH ONES ARE THE MOST PLAUSIBLE WHICH FIT THE PUBLISHED STATISTICS THE BEST IMAGINE TRYING ALL LETTERS AND NUMBERS FOR PASSWORDS UNTIL IT WORKS SO IMAGINE WHICH COMBINATIONS COME CLOSEST TO AVERAGE AGE, RACIAL BREAKDOWN AND SO ON THE MORE CLOSELY IT MATCHES THE PUBLISHED FIGURES THE MORE IT CAN MATCH THE POORER IT MATCHES THE LOWER LEVEL OF CERTAINTY IF THERE’S SEVEN PEOPLE IN A PARTICULAR AREA AND TELL ME FOUR ARE FEMALE, FOUR LIKE ICE CREAM AND FOUR ARE MARRIED ADULTS AND THREE OF THE ICE CREAM LOVERS OF FEMALE I CAN RECONSTRUCT THE AGE, SEX AND ICE CREAM PREFERENCES OF EVERYONE INVOLVED I’D START WITH THE THREE ICE-CREAM LOVING FEMALE THOUGH THERE’S THOUSAND OF COMBINATIONS FOR THREE PEOPLE ONLY A SMALL FRACTION, 36 IN FACT, ARE PLAUSIBLE THEY’RE IN THE RIGHT COMBINATION TO GIVE THE MEDIAN AGE AND THE SAME THING WORKS FOR THE FOUR FEMALES OVERALL THERE’S ALMOST 100 MILLION POSSIBLE COMBINATIONS OF AGES THEY COULD HAVE AND ONLY 24 AGE COMBINATIONS CONSISTENT WITH THE MEDIAN MEDIAN AND ONE OF THE PLAUSIBLE AGE COMBINATIONS WITH THE ICE CREAM LOVERS IT LEADS TO A SINGLE PLAUSIBLE AND RECONSTRUCTION OF THE AGES, SEXES AND ICE CREAM PREFERENCES OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED A 100% VIOLATION OF PRIVACY IF YOU DIDN’T LIST HOW MANY ICE CREAM LOVERS WERE FEMALE, THERE’D BE TWO PLAUSIBLE POSSIBILITIES I’D BE LESS CERTAIN OF THE COMBINATION OF AGES AND GENDERS AND ICE CREAM PREFERENCES AND IF YOU PUBLISHED LESS DATA THERE’D BE A HIGHER NUMBER OF PLAUSIBLE OUTCOMES AND THERE’S RESULTS OF THE STUDY IF ALL POSSIBLE COMBINATIONS OF AGES AND SEXES ARE SIMILARLY PLAUSIBLE, THEN AN ATTACKER CAN’T DISTINGUISH WELL AND THE PRIVACY IS PROTECTED BUT IF THEY’RE MOW PLAUSIBLE THAN THE REST THEY STAND OUT AND BECAUSE THEY STAND OUT ON PLAUSIBILITY THEY’RE LIKELY TO BE CLOSER TO THE TRUTH TO PROTECT PRIVACY ALL POSSIBILITIES NEED TO SEEM SIMILARLY PLAUSIBLE OR NOT TOO CONSPICUOUS IT’S QUANTIFIED BY MEASURES THE MAXIMUM SLOPE OF THE GRAPH IF THE SLOPE NEVER GETS TOO STEEP YOU CAN’T HAVE PEAKS OF PLAUSIBLE POSSIBILITIES HOW DO WE MAXIMIZE THE SLOPE AND MINIMIZE THE PEAKS? IN PRACTICE THE BEST WAY TO LIMIT AN ATTACKER’S ABILITY IS TO RANDOMLY CHANGE THE PUBLISHED VALUE LIKE ROLLING A DIE AND ADD THAT

TO THE PUBLISHED NUMBER AND JITTERING PUTS A LIMIT ON THE SLOPE OF THE PLAUSIBILITY GRAPH AND MAKES IT HARDER FOR A POSSIBILITY TO STAND OUT JITTERING RESULTS MAY SEEM LIKE LYING BUT AS LONG AS THE SIZE OF THE ADJUSTMENT ISN’T BIG ENOUGH TO MAKE BIG ENOUGH CHANGES AND IF I JUST TOLD YOU MY AGE OBVIOUSLY THERE’S ONE PLAUSIBLE POSSIBILITY, 31 SUPPOSE I SECRETLY PULL A NUMBER AND ADDED IT TO MY AGE ALL YOU KNOW IS MY TRUE AGE IS WITHIN THE FIVE YEARS OF THE NUMBER I TOLD YOU BUT YOU DON’T KNOW MY AGE EXACTLY MY PRIVACY HAS BEEN PRESERVED TO PROTECT MY AGE MORE I’D HAVE TO PULL A NUMBER BETWEEN MINUS 10 AND 10 OUT OF A HAT AND THAT INCREASE THE PLAUSIBLE POSSIBLES IT ALSO INCREASES YOUR UNCERTAINTY ABOUT MY ACTUAL AGE THE TRADE-OFF FOR PRIVACY IS INACCURACY IF I WANTED YOU TO KNOW MY AGE WITHIN A YEAR I COULD ONLY PULL A NUMBER BETWEEN MINUS ONE AND ONE IN GENERAL, MORE PRIVACY MEANS YOU GET LESS ACCURACY LESS PRIVACY MEANS YOU CAN HAVE MORE ACCURACY IF YOU DO THINGS RIGHT WHEN YOU PUBLISH RESULTS HOPEFULLY THERE’S A SWEET SPOT TO SHARE SOMETHING USEFUL WHILE STILL SUFFICIENTLY MAINTAINING SOMEONE’S PRIVACY AND MAINTAINING DECENT PRIVACY AND ACCURACY GETS EASIER AND EASIER WITH LARGE DATA SETS LIKE AS I ADD MORE NOISE TO THE IMAGE YOU GET THE GENERAL PICTURE EVEN ONCE YOU LOST THE TRUE VALUE OF A PARTICULAR PIXEL SO WE CAN AND SHOULD RANDOMLY JITTER PUBLIC STATISTICS WHICH THE U.S. CENSUS HAS BEEN DOING SINCE THE ’70s YOU CAN’T JUST ADD ‘OTHER RANDOM NOISE IF I SIMILE ADD RANDOM NOISE TO THIS PICTURE, YOU CAN GET BACK THE ORIGINAL CLEAN IMAGE AND YOU DON’T WANT THIS HAPPENING TO YOUR DATA THERE’S A FIELD OF COMPUTER SCIENCE DEDICATED TO FIGURING OUT THE LEAST POSSIBLE OF NOISE TO GET THE MOST PRIVACY AND ACCURACY AND TO FUTURE PROOF THE PUBLICATION OF DATA SO WHEN YOU GET MULTIPLE JITTERED STATISTICS THEY CAN’T BE COMBINED IN A CLEVER WAY TO CONSTRUCT PEOPLE’S DATA AND THE CENSUS BUREAU COULDN’T PROMISE THEY WERE JITTERING THE FIGURES IN CENSUS TABLES AND CHARTS BUT NOT IN A MATHEMATIC WAY AND COULDN’T PROMISE ANYTHING ABOUT PROTECTING PRIVACY UNTIL HOW 2020 CENSUS WILL FOR THE FIRST TIME BE USING MATHEMATICALLY VIGOROUS PRIVACY PROTECTION IT RELIABLY COMPOUNDS OVER MULTIPLE PIECES OF INFORMATION IF WE PUBLISH AN AVERAGE AND MEDIAN AGE WITH A PRIVACY LOSS FACTOR OF 3 AND HAVING BOTH PIECES OF INFORMATION IS AT MOST 6 THIS MEANS YOU CAN DECIDE ON THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF PRIVACY LOSS YOU’RE WILLING TO SUFFER AND THEN DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO RELEASE 10 PIECES OF INFORMATION AND LESS ACCURACY OR RELEASE ONE PIECE OF INFORMATION WITH THE FULL PRIVACY LOSS AND HIGHER LEVEL OF ACCURACY HOW MUCH PRIVACY WE NEED IS A HARD QUESTION TO ANSWER FIRST IT INVOLVES WEIGH HOW MUCH AS A SOCIETY WE VALUE KNOWING STUFF VERSUS THE DRAWBACKS OF RELEASING PRIVATE INFORMATION SECOND, SINCE THEY CAN BE MEASURED WE HAVE TO TRANSLATE THE IDEAS OF PRIVACY AND ACCURACY LOSS AS SOMETHING RELATABLE TO PEOPLE IN SOCIETY FIRST AND FOREMOST, IT’S HARD TO PUBLIC DATA WITHOUT VIOLATING THE INDIVIDUAL QUESTION AND IF YOU WANT A LIMIT ON THE PRIVACY VIOLATION YOU HAVE TO RANDOMLY JITTER THE STATISTICS TO PROTECT THE DATA THE ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION AFTER BEING JITTERED IS GENERALLY DESCRIBED BY SAYING SOMETHING LIKE IF WE RANDOMLY JITTER THE VIEW VALUE FOR THE POPULATION OF THE TOWN 98% OF THE TIME IT WOULD BE WITHIN 10 PEOPLE OF THE VIEW VALUE THERE’S HOW CLOSE YOU WANT IT TO THE ANSWER AND THE LOSS OF PRIVACY IS DESCRIBED IN TERMS OF HOW CONFIDENTLY AN ATTACKER WOULD BE ABLE TO SINGLE OUT A POSSIBILITY FOR THE TRUE DATA GIVEN THE PUBLISHED INFORMATION IS THERE A FEW POSSIBILITIES OR MANY PLAUSIBLE FOR THE WHAT THE TRUE DATA WOULD BE IT’S MEASURED BY THE PROMINENCE OF PEAKS AND THE PROTECTION OF

DHC NO DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE REGARDING THE CVAP DATA SINCE 2011 THE CENSUS BUREAU’S INTERNAL WORKING GROUP SET MARCH 31, 2020 AS THE FINAL DATE FOR DETERMINING THE VIABLE OF SOURCES ON CITIZENSHIP THAT MEANS IF WE CAN’T DETERMINE IT’S USEFUL BY MARCH 31 OF NEXT YEAR, WE WON’T USE THAT ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD SOURCE A SIMILAR ZIG WAS MADE FOR THE — DECISION WAS MADE FOR THE 2020 CENSUS LAST YEAR MARCH 31, 2020 IS ALSO BEING USED BY THE INTERNAL TEAM AS THE DATE FOR SPECIFYING WITH A CVAP PRODUCT WOULD LOOK LIKE THOUGH IT WON’T BE RELEASED AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO SAY WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO TABULATE AND HOW YOU’LL DO IT SO THAT’S THE INTERNAL DEADLINE FOR THAT WE’RE ALSO CONSIDERING PRODUCTS LIKE THE ONES WE TALKED ABOUT FOR THE OTHER DATA PRODUCTS SO USING ADMINISTRATIVE DATA THE SECRETARY’S MARCH 26, 2018 INSTRUCTIONS WE BEGAN DOING MODELING EFFORTS THAT FOCUSSED ON HAVING AVAILABLE TWO SOURCE OF DATA FOR CITIZENSHIP A SURVEY RESPONSE TO THE QUESTION THAT WAS PROPOSED FOR THE 20 CENSUS AND ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS ONCE THE SUPREME COURT HELD THE IN JUNCTION AND THE PRESIDENT ISSUED THE EXECUTIVE ORDER 13880 WE HAD TO SHIFT TO USE JUST ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS IT ISN’T A QUESTION OF WHETHER IT’S FEASIBLE BUT HOW TO ADAPT THE MODELING EFFORTS THAT’S WHAT’S NEVER — UNDERWAY NOW THERE’S FEDERAL AGENCIES THAT HAVE ACCESS TO PERSONAL LEVEL DATA RELEVANT TO ESTIMATING CITIZENSHIP THERE’S TWO PRIMARY USES ONE IS KEEPING THE NAMES, ADDRESSES AND OTHER INFORMATION CURRENT AND DETERMINING CITIZENSHIP FILE FROM ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS THAT CAUSED YOU TO BE ON THE FILE HERE’S THE CURRENT SOURCES OF CITIZENSHIP. FOR 94% OF THE UNIVERSE BUT IT’S NOT THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES INDIVIDUAL TAXPAYER NUMBERS THE BUREAU HAS NOT RECEIVED OR REQUESTED FROM THE IRS THE APPLICATION FORM AND OTHER DATA ASSOCIATED WITH AN I-10 BUT HAS A NUMERICAL FORMAT WHICH MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE ON ANOTHER ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD THE RECORD WAS FILED WITH AN I-10 RATHER THAN A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND THEY’RE ONLY ISSUED TO NON- CITIZENS THAT’S AN INFERENCE ON A NON-CITIZEN THAT COMES FROM KNOWING THE IDENTIFIER IS AN I-10 IRS FORMS 1040 AND 1099 WHICH ARE PRIMARILY USED TO KEEP THE INFORMATION CURRENT AND MEDICARE AND MEDICAID DATA ARE PRIMARILY USED TO KEEP THE SYSTEM CURRENT HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT DATA FROM THE AGENCIES I’VE LISTED THERE THAT’S THE LAST ONE ON THE LIST THOSE ARE VARIOUS DATA FILES FROM HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT WE’VE HAD MOUs IN PLACE TO ACQUIRE THESE ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS FOR QUITE SOME TIME THEY’RE USED IN OTHER PRODUCTS THEY HAVE A FIXED LENGTH AND HAVE TO BE CONTINUOUSLY SERVICED THE ADDITIONAL SOURCES COME FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY FROM THREE AGENCIES FROM WITHIN THE USCIS AND CPB AND I.C.E. WHERE WE GET LAWFUL PERMANENT CITIZENS AND VISAS AND ARRIVAL INFORMATION AND FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE WE GET PASSPORT DATA FROM THE SOCIAL

SECURITY ADMINISTRATION WHERE WE REQUESTED THE MASTER BENEFIT RECORD AND WE REQUESTED PATIENT REGISTRATION AND FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND U.S MARSHALS AND CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION DATA THOSE ARE THE SOURCES WE’RE SEEKING TO AUGMENT OUR SYSTEM WITH WHAT’S THE RESEARCH PROGRAM LOOK LIKE? WE HAVE DEVELOPED STATISTICAL MODELS TO COMBINE CITIZENSHIP DATA TO ESTIMATE BEST CITIZENSHIP FOR EACH PERSON KNOWN AS THE PERSONAL VALIDATION SYSTEM THE PRODUCTION RECORD LYNCHAGE SYSTEM THE SAME THE 2020 CENSUS USES TO INJEST ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS FOR THE OTHER PURPOSE IT’S USING THEM FOR AND USED TO BE COMBINED WITH THE 2020 INFORMATION EVIDENCE FILE TO PROVIDE THE DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM TO BE USED AFTER IT’S BEEN CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTED THIS RESEARCH BEGAN IN APRIL OF 2018 FINAL SPECIFICATIONS AND MODELS ARE PLANNED TO BE RELEASE BEFORE MARCH 1, 2020 IT’S IN TERNAL FOR MAPPING SERVICES YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME POINT IN WHICH YOU FIX THE SPECS THE REST OF THE RESEARCH PROGRAM IN ENHANCES THE CAPABILITY THE PBS CAN LINK ADMINISTRATIVE DATA FOR ABOUT 90% OF THE U.S. RESIDENT POPULATION ANOTHER 10% HAVE ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS AND WOULD BE LINKABLE IF THE SYSTEM ITSELF HAD THE PII FOR THE RECORD LINKAGE MANY REQUESTS FILES ARE PRIMARILY TO EXPAND THE CAPABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE CITIZEN STATUS OF THE REMAINING 10% OF THE U.S. POPULATION ALL DATA INCLUDING WHAT WAS JUST ARE PROTECTED AND CAN ONLY BE USED AND COVERED BY SECTION 9 WHICH PROHIBIT MAKING THE DATA FOR AN ESTABLISHMENT OR INDIVIDUAL CAN BE IDENTIFIED WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO PUBLISH THE DATA AND WE’RE BEEN DISCUSSING THE LAST 45 MINUTES OUR EFFORTS TO ENSURE THE 2020 PUBLICATIONS INCLUDING ANN CVAP PUBLICATION SATISFY TITLE 13 THE TABLES WILL BE PRODUCED USING THE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM USING TOP-DOWN THE CVAP TABLES WILL SHARE THE BUDGET DETERMINED BY THE EXECUTIVE POLICY COMMITTEE FOR THE 2020 CENSUS PUBLICATIONS WE’LL ACCOUNT FOR THE PRIVACY LOSS ASSOCIATE WITH THE TABLES AND OVERALL ACCOUNTING OF THE 2020 CENSUS PUBLICATIONS OKAY THANKS >> OKAY ANY QUESTIONS WE CAN START WITH WASN’T THAT A FANTASTIC VIDEO? YEAH I THINK KATHLEEN SENT AN E-MAIL TO SAY IT WAS FANTASTIC AND WANTED TO CHIME IN ON THAT AS WELL KUDOS TO KUNAL WHO FOUND IT LAST NIGHT SO WE’RE EXCITE ABOUT THAT >> ANDREW STANWICK THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION I’LL ASK A NAIVE PRESENTATION ABOUT WHAT WAS ON THE LAST SLIDE I THINK I WOULD BENEFIT FROM A BETTER INFORMATION OF WHAT IS MEANT BY TITLE 13 SECTION 9 IN THINKING ABOUT IT FOR THE DATA I’LL SUBMIT TO THE CENSUS I WOULD WAGER MY FAMILY BECAUSE OF ITS CONFIGURATION OF GENDERS AND AGES AND THE BLOCK GROUP WHERE IT LIVES IS PROBABLY IDENTIFIABLE IF THE RECORD WERE EVER SEEN AND WOULD KNOW THINGS ABOUT US YOU DIDN’T NEED TO KNOW IDENTIFY US, MAYBE HISPANIC ORIGIN I’M WONDERING, DOES THAT MEAN THAT YOU CAN’T RELEASE THE

INFORMATION OR IT CAN’T BE DISCOVERABLE EVEN IF IT’S NOT SPECIFICALLY ATTACHED TO ME? YOU SIMPLY COULDN’TFIDE AN INDIVIDUAL LINE OR HOUSEHOLDS RECORD? YOU’RE NOT RELEASING MY NAME OR ADDRESS BUT SOMEBODY DELIVER COULD FIGURE THAT OUT AND LEARN THINGS ABOUT US I NEED MORE BACKGROUND ON WHAT THE IMPORT OF THAT TITLE AND SECTION IS >> SO SECTION 9 OF TITLE 13 HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY INTERPRETED BY THE CENSUS BUREAU AS PROHIBITING THE RELEASE OF DATA EVEN IN TABULAR FORMAT WHERE YOU CAN ATTACH THE NAME TO THE RECORD AND SEEING IT WAS ONLY A SINGLE ENTITY IN A PARTICULAR CELL OF A TABULAR SUMMARY AND SAYING WELL, IF YOU DO THIS IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH BACKGROUND INFORMATION TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT ENTITY IS SO AT THE BLOCK LEVEL, THE AVERAGE BLOCK HAD IN 2010 HAD 30 PERSONS THAT MEANS BLOCK LEVEL POPULATIONS STATISTICS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY DEALING WITH POPULATION UNIQUES SO WE HAVEN’T RELEASED STATISTICS LIKE THAT BUT HAVE SAID BLOCK, AGE, SINGLE YEARS AND ETHNICITY IS A POPULATION FOR MORE THAN HALF THE POPULATION AND ANY ADDITIONAL ATTRIBUTE WILL INCREASE THAT AND VIRTUALLY EVERY HOUSEHOLD IN THE UNITED STATES IS A POPULATION UNIQUE AT THE BLOCK LEVEL PUBLISHING BLOCK LEVEL DATA IS EXTREMELY TRICKY THE TECHNIQUES THAT HAVE BEEN USED HISTORICALLY TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY GOT THEIR UNCERTAINTY PRIMARILY FROM ME NOT BEING ALLOWED TO TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT WE DID AND STATING IN THE TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION WE’VE DONE GEOGRAPHIC SWAPPING TO PROTECT THE GEOSPATIAL LOCATION AND MAY HAVE DONE OTHER THINGS WE ALSO GIVE SOME CHARACTERISTIC OF THE GEOGRAPHIC SWAPPING, FOR EXAMPLE, IN 2010 IT DID NOT CHANGE THE POPULATION TOTALS IN A BLOCK WE HAVE DISCOVERED THROUGH OUR RESEARCH, FAILURE TO PROVIDE GEOSPATIAL LOCATION TO THE BLOCK POPULATIONS IS A SERIOUS COMPROMISE OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE DATA WE HAVE INCLUDED THE BLOCK LEVEL AGREO SPACIAL LOCATION BEING PROTECTED BY THE FORMAL PRIVACY SYSTEM THAT MEANS TO USE METAPHYSICS LANGUAGE, EVERY ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERISTICS AND IN YOUR FAMILY’S CHARACTERISTICS HAVE BEEN JITTERED INCLUDING WHERE YOU WERE GEOSPATIALLY LOCATED IN OUR DATABASE WE DON’T DO IT RECORD BY RECORD BUT THROUGH AN ALGORITHM BUT GETS DOWN TO EVERY SINGLE CHARACTERISTIC GETS JITTERED AND ENOUGH TO AVOID REIDENTIFICATION ATTACKS THE PROBLEM IS OUR OLD METHOD OF DOING IT WAS TO TRY TO SPECIFY EXACTLY WHAT THE ATTACKER WAS GOING USE, HOW MUCH COMPUTING RESOURCES THE ATTACKER HAD AND WHAT SORT OF OUTSIDE KNOWLEDGE HE OR SHE BROUGHT TO THE TOMORROW YOU SPECIFIED A SPECIAL DATABASE AND THEY HAD SOPHISTICATED LINKAGE TECHNOLOGY THAT COULD MAP DATA WITH BLOCK I.D. THAT CONTAINS A

NAME AND ADDRESS ON THAT TECHNOLOGY WE DISCOVERED IN 2010 IF YOU HAD DONE THAT YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LINK ABOUT 45% OF THE POPULATION AND YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT WHO THEY WERE 38% OF THE TIME THAT WAS JUDGED TO BE AN UNACCEPTABLE CONDITION FOR 2020 WE HAD TO ABIDE BY BETTER CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTION USING FORMAL PRIVACY YOU’RE TRYING TO CONTROL NOT THE ABSOLUTE REIDENTIFICATION RATE BECAUSE IT DEPENDS ON THINGS OUT OF OUR CONTROL BUT THE CONTRIBUTION THE DATA WE RELEASE MAKE TO THAT REIDENTIFICATION SO THE DATA SCIENCE EXERCISE SO WHEN YOU TURN THE DATA SCIENTIST LOOSE ON THE 2020 TABLES THEIR INFERENCES ABOUT SPECIFIC VARIABLES WILL BE CONTROLLED BY THAT EPSILON WE SPECIFIED FOR THE FINAL PRODUCTS THAT’S A WORSE CASE SO BASICALLY IF YOU’RE CONTROLLING THE WORSE CASE, YOU’RE CONTROLLING ALL THE OTHER CASES SO WORSE CASE PROTECTION IS WHAT THE SYSTEMS ARE BASED ON AND THEY’RE HARD TO BUILD AND HARD TO REASON OUTSIDE THE MATHEMATICAL COMMUNITY BUT THEY WORK AND MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENCE OF PEOPLE THAT THIS DOES WORK AND IT’S IMPORTANT IT WORK AND IT’S IMPORTANT PEOPLE BELIEVE US WHEN WE SAY IT WORKS >> I WANT TO COMPLIMENT YOU ON THE RELEASE OF THE CODE BASE IT’S EXCELLENT PRACTICE TO MAKE PUBLIC WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND RELEASING THE CODE BASE IS CLEARLY THE RIGHT WAY TO DO IT I HAVE A COUPLE QUESTIONS FIRST, YOU MENTIONED YOU’RE GOING IT RELEASE THE 2010 DATA AND THE SYSTEM OF THE ORIGINAL DATA OTHER THAN THE NEW ONE AND TRYING TO DIE COMPARISON BETWEEN THE OLD SYSTEM COMPARED TO THE NEW ONE AND THE NEW ONE ALLOWS TO YOU DO REASONING ON TOP OF IT I GUESS THE CITIZENSHIP DATA PEOPLE CONSIDER MORE SENSITIVE THAN OTHER ATTRIBUTES AND ALSO PERHAPS MORE CORRELATED ACROSS BLOCKS THAN SOME OF THE OTHER ATTRIBUTES IF YOU LOOK AT THE DISTRIBUTION OF SECTION OF NON-CITIZENS IN THE BLOCK IS PROBABLY MORE BIMODAL AND MAKE IT EASIER TO MOUNT TO RECONSTRUCT THE ATTRIBUTE THAN FOR A COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT ATTRIBUTE ALL OF WHICH TO SAY IT MAKES SENSE TO HAVE A HIGHER LEVEL OF PRIVACY GUARANTEE FOR THIS ATTRIBUTE COMPARED TO OTHER — OTHERS I WONDER IF YOU HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT DOING THAT MAY NOT BE THAT HARD WITH A RANDOMIZED RESPONSE BEFORE FEEDING IT TO THE DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE SYSTEM >> WE INVESTIGATED THE FEASIBILITY OF PUTTING EXTRA

CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTIONS ON THE CITIZENSHIP VARIABLE THAT’S WHAT WE’LL LOOK AT >> GREAT MINDS THINK ALIVE >> THIS GOES BEYOND WHAT’S HERE BUT THERE’S A VERY INTERESTING IMPLICATIONS ON YOUR SLIDE 54 A BIG LIL — LIMITATION OF THE CENSUS BUREAU SYSTEM IS IT ONLY WORKS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE FSN AND YOU COULDN’T GET A PICK IF YOU WORKED IN THAT DATABASE.BUREAU SYSTEM IS IT ONLY WORKS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE FSN AND YOU COULDN’T GET A PICK IF YOU WORKED IN THAT DATABASE THEY SURVEYS TYPICALLY LEAVE 5% TO 10% UNMATCH AND AND HERE YOU’RE CREATING LINKAGE BEYOND THE SYSTEM IS THE BUREAU CONTEMPLATING CREATING PICKS FOR THESE FOLKS TO EXPAND THE LINKAGE IN ALL FUTURE SURVEYS? >> WE ACTUALLY ALREADY DO THAT AND CAN GET A PICK WITH A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER EVERY PERSON AND RECORD WE INGEST GETS PUT THROUGH AN ANONYMIZATION ROUTINE THAT REMOVES THE NAME AND ADDRESS AND REPLACES THEM WITH CODES ONE OF THE BIPARTISAN BYPRODUCTS OF THE RESEARCH IS TO REMOVE THE PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT THAT’S HOW WE DO IT THE CITIZENSHIP VARIABLE WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS RESEARCH THE OTHER PRODUCTION USES OF THE 2020 CENSUS WILL RUN ON THE PRODUCTION CODE NOT LOCKED BUT IN A PRODUCTION PROCESS IT’S TO EXPAND BEYOND PEOPLE ISSUED SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS >> THAT’S GREAT >> IT SEEMS LIKE A GOOD TIME TO REMIND EVERYBODY IT’S A ONE-WAY STREET YOU GUYS INGEST THE DATA BUT BY LAW THERE’S NO SHARING IT ANY OTHER WAY >> THE CENSUS BUREAU IS THE DATA ROACH HOTEL THEY COME IN IDENTIFIABLE AND COME OUT UNIDENTIFIABLE >> KRISHNA >> MAYBE THIS MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BETTER THE LAST TWO POSITIONS HAVE FAIRLY LINKED IT WAS INTERESTING IN THINKING ABOUT ALL OF THIS CONTRAST SEEMS SUPER IMPORTANT MORE SO IN LIGHT OF THESE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT CITIZENSHIP PART OF THIS IS MAYBE MADE ME THINK ABOUT HOW PEOPLE THINK ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY AND HOW IT MAPS AND THIS IS RELATED TO ANDREW’S QUESTION AND HOW IT MAPS TO HOW YOU GUYS ARE THINKING ABOUT IT INTERNALLY I DON’T — WE HAVE A NICE SET OF RESULTS WITH TAB LARRY — TABULARRY INSTRUCTIONS AND I THINK THEY WANT TO LINK THEMSELVES TO THEIR RECORDS TAB AND 538 THAT HAS A BOT THAT TWEETS OUT AND I’D LOVE TO UNDERSTAND THE DEGREE TO WHICH WE HAVE THIS ABILITY TO GUARANTEE PRIVACY USING THE DEFINITION AND HOW CLOSE THE DEFINITION MATCHES WHAT WE THINK PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT ARE WE LOOKING FOR OUR KEYS THOUGH THEY MAY BE SOMEWHERE ELSE JUST BECAUSE THERE’S LOTS OF LIGHT BUT MAYBE THERE’S MORE OF A DELTA BETWEEN THE THEORY OF WHAT WE CAN DO VERSUS WHAT MATTERS MOST TO INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR EXPECTATIONS ABOUT PRIVACY AND WHAT IT DOES AND DOESN’T MEAN >> WE HAVE A RESEARCH QUESTION ADDRESSING WHAT YOU JUST RAISED IN THE CENTER FOR BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES METHODS THEY HAVE ALREADY FIELD TEST THE

QUESTIONNAIRE AND THEY’LL BE DOING THE PRODUCTION SURVEYING OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST HALF OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR THE BASIC WAY IT WORK IS THAT THE SAMPLED INDIVIDUALS ARE FIRST GIVEN THE CENSUS QUESTIONNAIRE AND THEN ASKED A SERIES OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SENSITIVITY OF THE QUESTIONS IN THAT QUESTIONNAIRE A SERIES OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THEY PERCEIVE CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTION TO APPLY TO THOSE DATA HOW WORRIED THEY ARE ABOUT PARTICULAR CHARACTERISTICS AND IN THE LAST DESIGN THE QUESTIONNAIRE THEY SAW CONTAINED A CITIZENSHIP QUESTION THEY WERE ASKED ABOUT THAT AS WELL IN ADDITION, THE EARLY RESEARCH FROM THAT GROUP CONFIRMS MOST OF WHAT YOU SAID IT’S EXTREMELY DIFFICULT FOR A RANDOMLY SAMPLED HOUSEHOLD IN THE UNITED STATES TO RELATE TO THE WAY TECHNICAL PROFESSIONALS IN THIS AREA DESCRIBED CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTION AND DESCRIBE PRIVACY RISK AND EVEN MORE DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO RELATE TO THE QUANTIFICATIONS OF IT THAT WE ARE USING SO BEHAVIORAL SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING HARD AT TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTION AND THEN GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SENSITIVITY OF VARIOUS ATTRIBUTES THAT GROUP IS MAKING A REPORT TO THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE IN ONE OF ITS UPCOMING MEETINGS AND WE CAN SCHEDULE A SIMILAR REPORT FOR CSAC EVERYTHING YOU SHED IS ON THE MARK AND IS KNOWN TO OUR GOOD CONFIDENTIALITY RESEARCH GROUP WE SHOULD HAVE THEM REPORT MORE OF THE RESEARCH >> FROM DEBORAH ON THE PHONE WRITES I APPRECIATE JOHN’S PRESENTATION AND TERRIFIC VIDEO CAN HE COMMENT ON PRIVACY WITHIN THE RDC NETWORK IT SEEMS THEY MAY BECOME MORE IMPORTANT AS ADDITIONAL PROTECTION IS PUT IN PLACE ON PUBLICLY RELEASED DATA GIVEN SECURITY AND REQUIREMENTS TO USE RDC IS THERE A COMMITMENT TO MINIMALLY PER–THE DATA TO MAX — PERTURB THE DATA TO MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN.PERTURB THE DATA TO MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN.THE DATA TO MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN.DATA TO MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN.TO MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN.MAXIMALLY USE IT >> AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE I GET THAT QUESTION RELATIVELY OFTEN I’LL GIVE FOLLOW-UP IF NEEDED CURRENTLY IN THE FSRDCs WHEN THE PROBLEM INVOLVED CENSUS BUREAU DATA THE RESEARCHERS GET MINIMALLY PERTURBED VERSIONS OF THOSE FILES SOMETIMES THEY ACTUALLY GET THE FULL UNDERLYING FILE SOMETIMES IN THE CASE OF THE CENSUS THEY GET THE 100% DETAILED FILE TO WORK WITH AND IT’S PICKED AMONG OTHER THINGS THEN THERE ARE STUDIES THAT PRODUCE STATISTICAL SUMMARIES INTENDED FOR THE OPEN SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY AND GO THROUGH A CUSTOM DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE REVIEW THAT IS ACTUALLY EXEMPLAR IN THE WORLD IN THE SENSE THAT THEIR FULL CODE BASE FROM THE ASSETS THEY WERE ALLOWED TO ACCESS ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE TABLES THEY WISH TO RELEASE ARE BY A TRAINED AVOIDANCE OFFICER AND THEY APPLY TRADITIONAL DISCLOSURE LIMITATION WE ARE NOT CHANGING THAT SYSTEM BUT WE ARE CHANGING WHAT THE TRADITIONAL AVOIDANCE DOES MIGRATING IT TO FORMALLY PRIVATE DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE BUT LIKE FOR THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY WE HAVE NOT PUT THOSE PRACTICES IN PLACE FOR CERTAIN RDC PROJECTS THAT WERE PROPOSED TO MAKE MAJOR LARGE-SCALE DATA RELEASES WHICH IS UNUSUAL WE NORMALLY DON’T ALLOW THAT BUT THERE’S SOME ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNAL AS WELL AS EXTERNAL RDC PROJECT IN THOSE CASES WE HAVE ALREADY USED FORMALLY PRIVATE METHODS AS WE DO FOR NEW PRODUCTS BEING DEVELOPED INSIDE THE CENSUS BUREAU THERE ISN’T A CURE FOR THE GENERAL SCIENTIFIC HYPOTHESIS IT’S POSSIBLE TO MAKE PUBLIC USE PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT THE

ARE OFFICIAL AND BUILD ARBITRARY GEOGRAPHIC AGGREGATES THEY’RE NOT INTENDED STO — TO STAND ALONE AND IS THE BLOCK LEVELS FROM SYNTHESIS WERE NEVER INTENDED TO STAND ALONE FROM THE BLOCK GROUP THEY’RE DESIGNED FOR PIXELS OF BLOCK SIZES THE BLOCK IS THE SMALLEST PIXEL AND HOW IT CAME INTO THE TABULATION PRODUCTS WHAT WAS THE SMALLEST GEOGRAPHIC UNIT TO MOVE PEOPLE AROUND TO MEET IT WASN’T TO DESIGN VOTING DISTRICTS THAT HAD EQUAL POPULATION AND ONE BLOCK EACH THAT’S NOT THE USE CASE THE USE CASE IS VOTING DISTRICTS FOR LEGISLATIVE BODIES FOR GOVERNMENTAL LEVELS THAT HAVE TO HAVE EXACTLY OR APPROXIMATELY EQUAL POPULATIONS SO YOU NEED A PIXEL THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE THAT AND WITH THE OFFICIAL POPULATION IN THE MIXEL AND THE ABILITY — PIXEL AND THE ABILITY TO MOVE THAT AROUND AND THE GEOGRAPHIC DEFINITION IS MAKING THAT MORE ACCURATE AS THOSE GEOGRAPHIC AREAS GET MORE POP ULOUS AND SOME OTHER USE CASE MORE DIFFICULT AND WE’RE WORKING ON THEM ANOTHER EXAMPLE IS OUR OWN ESTIMATES ON PYRAMIDS WE’RE EXAMINING THAT KIND OF SUMMARY TO MAKE SURE THE DATA ARE USEFUL FOR THAT PURPOSE TOO THERE’S A LOT OF INTEREST GROUP AND IT’S EXTRAORDINARILY HARD TO BALANCE THE INTEREST AND NOT SOMETHING WE HAVE A LOT OF PRACTICE DOING AND WE GET GOOD AT AT IT FAST WE SEEK INPUT NOT JUST ON THE ACCURACY BUT THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS AND WHAT IS INHERENT IN SETTING THE PRIVACY LOSS BUDGET >> THIS IS DEBORAH SINCE THE ENVIRONMENT IS MOVING WILL WE SEE IT IN THE RRC BUT I THINK SHE MEANT THE CENSUS RPCs THANK YOU DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION? IT’S KIND OF VAGUE >> JOHN ABOWD I DON’T SEE HOW IT’S DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE I ANSWERED EARLIER >> NO, WE’RE GOOD KATHY WANTED TO SAY SOMETHING >> I WAS INTERESTED IN THE QUESTION AND IN THINKING WITH THE TIMING OF THIS RELEASE OF THE CITIZENSHIP STRUCTURE IS MARCH 31, 2020 IN THE HEAT OF TRYING TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO ANSWER THE CENSUS SO HAVE THERE BEEN THOUGHTS ABOUT COMMUNICATION ON THAT NOT THAT I UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S SILOED BUT ALSO WHAT WOULD BE PICKED UP BY THE NEWS OR SOCIAL MEDIA OR OTHER THINGS THAT COULD ENCOURAGE MISINFORMATION >> SO WE’RE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU ANYTHING THAT DISRUPTS THE OPERATIONS OF THE 2020 CENSUS THAT WOULD BE COUNTERPRODUCTIVE IN EXPLAINING WHERE THOSE DEADLINES COME FROM, THEY COME FROM THE NECESSITY TO FORMALIZE WHAT WE’LL DO AND THEY’RE HARD INTERNAL DEADLINES BUT THE COMMUNICATION PLAN WILL BE DEVELOPED IN A MANNER THAT ENSURES THAT THE 2020 CENSUS CAN BE CONDUCTED WITH MINIMAL DISRUPTION >> AND JOE >> THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION AND THE VIDEO I THOUGHT WAS SUPERB AND WE HAD A SNEAK PREVIEW NEXT TO OUR COLLEAGUE I THOUGHT THAT WAS EXCELLENT IN TERMS OF THE COMPLEXITY OF THIS ISSUE IN TERMS OF THE CENSUS LOOKING AT SOME OF THE CITIZENSHIP RELATED ISSUES IS SOMETHING WE LOOKED AT CLOSELY IN HOMELAND SECURITY IS WHAT WE DID THE CBP AND CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES AND THE HOMELAND SECURITY INVESTIGATIONS THOSE THREE GROUPS CITIZENSHIP OF HOMELAND WAS DIVIDE INTO

THREE PIECES FROM THE HOMELAND SECURITY ACT IN THE WAKE OF 9/11 AND NOT IN THE BROAD CENSUS FORMAT WE’RE THINKING ABOUT AND IT WAS IMPORTANT TO BE INVOLVED IN SOME LARGER EQUATION LOOKING AT THIS FROM A QUANTIFICATION POINT OF VIEW IN OTHER WORDS, I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING AND MAYBE KRISHNA MADE THE POINT ABOUT QUANTIFICATION IT’S IMPORTANT IT BE MOVED FROM THE BLOCK LEVEL CONCERNS AND LOOK AT IT FROM A MORE GEOGRAPHIC SPACE AND FROM MY POINT OF VIEW AT THE STATE LEVEL WHAT’S THE ISSUE WHAT’S CITIZENSHIP LOOK LIKE IN AMERICA IN 2020 I WANT TO ARTICULATE THE MEI CRO USES OF U.S. HOMELAND OF ENTRY AND WHO WOULD GET A VISA AT A CONSULAR SITUATION AROUND THE WORLD TRUSTED TRAVELER PROGRAMS MANY OF YOU USE THOSE PROGRAMS AND LOOK AT THE DATA HIGHLY SENSITIVE AND IN HOMELAND WE DID A GOOD JOB OF KEEPING IT EXTREMELY CLOSE BUT TO GET THE PRIVILEGES PEOPLE HAD TO SUBMIT INFORMATION TO HOMELAND SECURITY TO OBTAIN THOSE PRIVILEGES SOME OF WHICH THE CITIZENSHIP WAS A RELEVANT FACTOR IN US EVALUATING THE CIRCUMSTANCES BUT I DO THINK AS I SIT WHERE I SIT CURRENTLY, MY VIEW OF THIS IS IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THE CENSUS HAS TO BE PROTECTED FROM THESE CONCERNS ABOUT THE INFORMATION WILL BE USED SOMEHOW TO PUSH SOMEONE ASIDE WHO IS CURRENTLY IN THE UNITED STATES I STRONGLY ENDORSE MAKING SURE WE PROTECT THIS LIKE WE DID AT HOMELAND THE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WE HAD THE SENSITIVE HOMELAND SECURITY INFORMATION AND HAD THE NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION AND HAD ANY NUMBER OF DIFFERENT ISSUES I THINK AND HOPE THE PUBLIC HAD CONFIDENCE WE WERE MAINTAINING THOSE IN A DISCREET WAY THAT’S SOMETHING I APPRECIATE YOU’VE BEEN DOING AND I APPRECIATE THE LEADERSHIP THAT’S BEEN GIVEN THE ISSUE I ALSO LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM I DON’T KNOW WHAT WE CAN HEAR FROM THE INTERNAL WORKING GROUP WHEN IT’S MEETING AND DISCUSSING SOME OF THESE ISSUES BUT I DO VALUE THE PARTICIPATION IN THIS AS A STEP BACK FROM IT, I DON’T KNOW I’M NO LONGER IN GOVERNMENT BUT I WONDER WITH THE UTILITY OF THIS OR ON A MACRO LEVEL AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE REQUESTED USES HAVE BEEN IN OTHER WORDS, OF PEOPLE SAYING WE WANT THIS DATA AND FOR UTILITY, WHAT UTILITY THIS SERVE IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT ARE THE REQUESTED USES, JOHN, THIS INFORMATION WOULD BE FOR IN OTHER WORDS, IS THERE UTILITY IN THE STATE OF GEORGIA TO KNOW THE ANECDOTAL NUMBER AND THERE’S 11 MILLION RESIDUAL PEOPLE WITHOUT DOCUMENTS AND WHATEVER THE NOMENCLATURE IS UNDOCUMENTED OR ILLEGAL THERE’S NEW TERMINOLOGY UTILIZED THE AWARENESS OF THIS MAY BE A WAY FOR LEGISLATURES TO SET ASIDE ASSIMILATION OF POPULATIONS THAT ARE THERE BUT I’M JUST MAKING SOME OF THIS UP RIGHT NOW SO I’LL END MY COMMENTS BECAUSE I APPRECIATE THE TOLERANCE OF TOMMY AND ALLISON THROUGH THESE LENGTHY COMMENTS BUT I STRUGGLE WITH THIS BECAUSE I HAVE THE PREVIOUS BACKGROUND IT’S PERSON TO KNOW THESE THINGS IN THESE DISCREET WAYS BUT IN TERMS OF THE BROADER UTILITY OF THE INFORMATION INTERESTED IN

WHAT REQUEST OF USE ARE ARTICULATED THE LAST THING WE NEED TO HAVE HAPPEN IS SOMEONE NOT FILL OUT THEIR CENSUS FORM THIS IS MY ARTICULATED CONCERN BECAUSE IT MAY BE USED AGAINST THEM INDIVIDUALLY I DON’T THINK THAT’S THE KIND OF WAY THE INFORMATION WILL BE USED BUT I’M NOT CERTAIN BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW HOW IT WOULD BE USED I SET OUT A COUPLE EXAMPLES WHICH ARE HOW WE APPROPRIATE MONEY CERTAINLY APPORTIONMENT WON’T BE AFFECTED BECAUSE WHETHER SOMEONE’S A CITIZEN OR NON-CITIZEN CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION ARE BASED ON PEOPLE IN A GEOGRAPHIC AREA THAT MAY BE MORE OF A COMMENT THAN A QUESTION I WANTED TO SHARE THOSE THOUGHTS WITH YOU SEE IF YOU CAN DIG A QUESTION OUT OF THAT, JOHN >> THIS IS JOHN ABOWD, I DON’T THINK IT WILL COME AS A SURPRISE I TAKE QUESTIONS WITH EXTREME SENSITIVITY WHAT I’D LIKE TO SAY IS THE SLIDES I PRESENTED ON THE USES OF THE 2020 CENSUS FOR APPORTIONMENT AND REDISTRICTING AND CVAP IS WHAT WE UNDERSTAND WILL BE OUR PROCEDURE I ALSO WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT APPORTIONMENT IS BASED ON THE RESIDENT POPULATION AND RESIDENT POPULATION IS A WELL DEFINED ENTITY THAT INCLUDES BOTH CITIZENS AND NON-CITIZENS THE PRODUCTION OF CVAP DATA WE’RE GATHERING INFORMATION ON THE USE CASE IT’S SUPPOSED TO MEET AND WE’LL BE AS TRANSPARENT AS WE CAN BE ABOUT THAT PRODUCT WAS INTENDED FOR THOSE USE CASES >> IT’S THE ROACH MOTEL, RIGHT, COMES IN, DOESN’T GO OUT THAT’S ALWAYS IMPORTANT >> LET ME REPEAT IT BECAUSE THIS IS JOHN ABOWD IT’S ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO NOTE WE ARE INGEST ING IDENTIFIABLE DATA BUT MAKING WHAT I THINK CAN BE REASONABLY CHARACTERIZED AS AN EXTREMELY STRONG EFFORT TO MAKE SURE THE PUBLICATIONS CAN ONLY BE USED FOR STATISTICAL PURPOSES AND THEY DON’T ENDANGER ANY OF THE RESPONDENTS AND WE’RE DOING OUR BEST TO PROTECT THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF THE DATA AND ANY OTHER DATA IN COMBINATION WITH THE 2020 CENSUS >> THAT’S A MANTRA IT HAS TO BE TREATED I DON’T KNOW HOW IDEAL WITH THE ROACH MOTEL METAPHOR BUT IT’S CRITICAL INFORMATION BE TREAT KNEAD WAY THAT ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO ENGAGE IN WHATEVER THEIR CITIZENSHIP STATUS MIGHT BE THIS IS A UNIQUE AMERICAN PHENOMENON I’M PREACHING TO THE CHOIR BECAUSE THOSE WHO LIVED HERE YOUR ENTIRE CAREERS LIVED THIS BUT I APPRECIATE THE RESPONSIBILITY HAVING DONE SOME OF THIS IN A PREVIOUS LIFE TIME WITH SOMETHING CALLED THE CENSUS MONITORING BOARD THANK YOU >> THIS IS JUAN PABLO I HAVE A QUICK COUPLE SUGGESTIONS FIRST, A LITTLE BIT OF PRAISE FOR JOHN’S WORK AND THE CENSUS BUREAU’S WORK ON DIFFERENTIAL PRIVACY IN THE RESEARCH WORLD WE TIMES TALK ABOUT RESEARCH OFTEN PAPERS COME OUT ABOUT A TOPIC AND TAKES 10 YEARS FOR ANY IMPLEMENT TO HAPPEN AND WHAT WE’RE SEEING HERE IS A LOT OF RESEARCH BEING IMPLEMENTEDLEAD-IN RIGHT WAY RELATED TO THAT JUST SUGGESTIONS ON A COUPLE COMMUNITIES THAT KEEP COMING TO MIND EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO JOHN’S PRESENTATIONS ONE IS A NORMAL METHODS IN SCIENCE THERE’S BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH BUT I THINK IT WILL A GOOD MATCH AND IN WORKING WITH HEALTH

RECORDS A LOT OF THAT IS BEING PRODUCED I THINK WHAT I HAVE SEEN FOR FOLKS WHO DO THAT KIND OF RESEARCH IS NOT NEARLY AS SOPHISTICATED AS WHAT YOU’RE DOING HERE AND IN MANY WAYS THAT DATA FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE MAY BE MORE SENSITIVE I THINK THAT MIGHT BE ANOTHER INTERESTING CONNECTION WHERE MAYBE MORE MINDS, MORE THINKING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM COULD LEAD TO GOOD OUTCOMES >> I THINK THAT’S IT FOLKS WHO HAVE COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS, KRISHNA IS GOING TO BE ACCUMULATING THEM AND SO PLEASE BE SURE TO PLAN TO GET WITH HIM ON THAT WE’LL DO THAT A LITTLE BIT LATER TODAY AND I THINK WE’LL TAKE A BREAK ARE WE ON TIME? WE GET TWO EXTRA MINUTES OF BREAK I THOUGHT WE WERE EARLY SO WE’RE COMING BACK AT 11:45 AS SOON AS THE CHAIR COMES AND

TAKES HER CHAIR >> TOMMY WRIGHT

AND BILL DAVY TO PRESENT ON THE PLANSPLANS

>> I’M THE ECONOMIC CENSUS SURVEY DIRECTOR

NEXT TO ME IS BILL DAVY THE METHODOLOGY DIRECTOR AND WE’LL BE SLATING UP THE PRESENTATION TODAY WE’LL PRESENT AN UPDATE ON THE ECONOMIC CENSUS REGARDING OUR DATA DISSEMINATION FOR THE ECONOMIC CENSUS IN 2018 I PROVIDE AND AN UPDATE IN THE DATA COLLECTION PROCESS WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF I CLOSED OUT IN MARCH OF 2019 AND WE’VE NOW MOVED INTO DATA REVIEW AND EDITING AND WILL RELEASE OUR FIRST SET OF DATA FROM THE 2017 ECONOMIC CENSUS NEXT THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 19 SO BRIEF BACKGROUND INFORMATION JUST TO GET EVERYBODY ON THE SAME PAGE THE ECONOMIC CENSUS IS AUTHORIZED UNDER TITLE 13 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 131 THE DATA’S COLLECTED EVERY FIVE YEARS IN ENDING TWO AND SEVEN THE CONTENT IS DEVELOPED IN COORDINATION WITH BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT THE ECONOMIC CENSUS IS THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE MEASUREMENT OF THE U.S. ECONOMY WE PROVIDE STATISTIC AT THE NATIONAL STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS AND IT PROVIDES INFORMATION ON INDUSTRY REVENUES AND OWNER REVENUES OF AMERICAN BUSINESS PERFORMANCE THAT ARE CONSISTENT, COMPARABLE AND COMPREHENSIVE ACROSS ALL INDUSTRIES AND GEOGRAPHIC AREAS WE HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF DATA USERS SOME BIG ONES ARE LISTED HERE DISTRICT OF ANALYSIS USE THE DATA FOR GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT AND PRODUCT ACCOUNTS CENTER FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID USE IT INTO THEIR GEOGRAPHIC HEALTH SPENDING BY STATE THE FEDERAL RESERVE WILL USE IT AS A BENCHMARK FOR THEIR DEVELOP PRODUCTION AND CAPACITY NUMBERS BUREAU OF LABOR USES IT AS INPUT INTO THEIR PRODUCER PRICE INDEX AND THERE’S OTHER USERS THAT USE THE DATA FOR MAKING PERSONAL AND BUSINESS DECISION OR POLICY THAT’S CURRENTLY 31.1 BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES THE KEY WORD IS ESTABLISHMENTS IT’S AN ESTABLISHMENT-BASED SURVEY OF THOSE 7.8 MILLION HAVE EMPLOYEES THAT IS THE UNIVERSE OF THE ECONOMIC CENSUS SO TO WRAP UP DATA COLLECTION WHICH I SPOKE ON IN DECEMBER, I HAVE A COUPLE GRAPHS I WANT TO SHARE THESE ARE RESPONSE RATES GRAPHS ABOUT 75% THE FIRST GRAPH IS THE RESPONSE RATE BY STATE ON THE MAIL LOCATIONS WHERE DID WE MAIL THE LETTERS NOR RESPOND ENT TO REPORT YOU CAN IMAGINE LARGE COMPANIES RECEIVE AT THEIR HEADQUARTERS LOCATION TO REPORT YOU CAN SEE THE RESPONSE BY STATE THE LOWEST RESPONSE BY STATE WOULD HAVE BEEN SEEN IN CONNECTICUT IF IT’S CLOSER TO RED IT’S A LOWER RESPONSE AND YOU CAN SEE WHERE WE GOT A LOW AND HIGH RESPONSE LOWEST WAS CONNECTICUT, U.S VIRGIN ISLANDS AND PUERTO RICO AND HIGHEST WERE IOWA, ARKANSAS AND THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE ISLANDS THE NEXT IS A RESPONSE RATE BY FISCAL ESTABLISHMENT WE MAY HAVE GONE TO THE HEADQUARTERS AND IT SHOWS BY THEIR ACTUAL PHYSICAL LOCATION WHERE THE RESPONSE RATES WERE BY STATE SAME COLOR CODING ANYTHING CLOSER TO THE DEEP RED IS LOWER RESPONSE BY STATE AND DEEP BLUE IS A HIGHER RESPONSE LOWEST ARE D.C., NEW YORK AND RHODE ISLAND AND HIGHEST WERE IN IOWA AND WISCONSIN IT GIVES A GOOD GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION OF WHERE WE SAW RESPONSES LEADING UP TO DATA DISSEMINATION

IT GOES THROUGH THE BUSINESS REGISTER FIRST AND IT UPDATES THINGS SUCH AS ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE, CHANGES IN OWNERSHIP, NEW ESTABLISHMENT ADS AND NEW LOCATIONS ADDED TO A COMPANY, INFORMATION RELATED TO GEOGRAPHY AND SO FORTH WE MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE COMPANY STRUCTURE CORRECT ON THE BUSINESS REGISTER IT’S IMPORTANT NOR CENSUS AND INDICATORS THAT RELY ON CENSUS DATA FOR BENCHMARKING THE SPECIFIC TRADE AREA SUBJECT MATTER EDITS WHAT WE CALL THE BACK END WHEN WE RECEIVE THE DATA IN THE TRADE AREAS WE LOOK AT THE DATA AND PERFORM CHECKS FOR COMPLETENESS AND CONSISTENCY AND COMPARE TO INDUSTRY AVERAGES AND LOOK AT HISTORIC INFORMATION AND VALIDATE LOGICAL SCENARIOS SUCH AS DOES THE REVENUE AND PAYROLL MAKE SENSE AND THEY’RE NOT REPORT BEING AT A LARGER RATE THAN REVENUE AND PERFORMING AMPUTATIONS OF THE DATA TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE A COMPLETE RECORD ARE THERE MISSING ITEMS WE HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR BOTH IN THE BUSINESS REGISTER AND TRADE AREAS WILL HAVE ANALYSTS REVIEW THE CASE AND MAKE UPDATES AS NECESSARY BASED ON WHAT THE REFERRAL WAS IN GENERAL OUR REFERRAL RATES ARE BETWEEN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF 17% TO 20% BETWEEN THE BUSINESS REGISTER AND TRADE AREAS IT’S A FAIR NUMBER OF REFERRALS THAT GET WORKED IN THE PROCESS WITH THE REFERRAL, SOME REFERRALS TAKE NO TIME TO FIX AND SOME TAKE HOURS DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF RESEARCH NEEDED TO UPDATE THE RECORD SO CONTINUING WITH DATA EDITING REVIEW WE’LL LOOK AT THE LARGEST COMPANIES TO ENSURE MICRODATA OF THE MOST COMPLEX COMPANIES ARE REVIEWED AND COORDINATED KROOGS — ACROSS THE AREA AND WE’LL MAKE SURE THE COMPANY HOLISTICALLY MAKES SENSE ACROSS THE TRADE AREAS FOR THE MOST PART THEY RECEIVE THE MOST REVIEW AND WE’LL SPEND A LOT OF TIME LOOKING AT THE LARGE COMPANIES AND LOOK AT INFLUENCERS AND THEY HAVE TO THE MOST REVENUE OR MOST PAYROLL WE’LL BE SURE TO MAKE THOSE CASES ARE CORRECT AND THEN UTILIZE VARIOUS PROGRAMS IN THE EDITING INCLUDING A MASS CORRECTION IF THERE’S SOMETHING SYSTEMATICALLY GOING WRONG IS IT A WAY A COMPANY REPORT AND WE’LL CORRECT RECORDS QUICKLY RATHER THAN ONE BY ONE SO ONCE THE MICROREVIEW IS COMPLETE WE’LL MOVE TO THE STAGE OF MACRO REVIEW WHICH IS WHERE WE ARE NOW IT’S CONDUCTED WHEN THERE’S A FULL SET OF TABULATED DATA THAT INCLUDES HAVING ALL CASES THAT REPORTED BACK TO US AND NON MAILS AND ADMINISTRATIVE DATA ASSOCIATED AND DELINQUENT CASES WE HAVE TO IMPUTE FOR AT THAT POINT WE’LL TAKE THE RECORDS AND AGGREGATE THEM TO A MACRO LEVEL TO START A REVIEW OF STATE OR INDUSTRY LEVEL DATA AND TO DO THAT IN ORDER TO SUMMARY THE DATA IS READY TO BE RELEASED WE’LL START TO REVIEW PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION OF SPECIFIC CELLS CELLS THAT DON’T MAKE SENSE AT AN AGGREGATE IF WE’RE LOOKING AT COMPARISONS OF 2017 AND 2012 DATA AND SEE AN INDUSTRY OF A TREND UP 150% AND IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE AND WE’LL DRILL INTO THE SPECIFICS OF THAT INDUSTRY TO SEE WHAT’S GOING ON THERE AND IF THERE’S A SET OF RECORDS THAT STILL NEED TO BE CORRECTED WE’LL LOOK FOR DARTH DIFFERENCES FROM 2012 TO 0217 — 2017 AND LOOK AT STATES WITH HIGH IMPUTATION LEVELS AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THEM DOWN BY REVIEWING THE REPORTED DATA AND MAKING SURE MAYBE THERE WEREN’T DATA SLIDES OR OTHER ISSUES THAT CAUSED THE RECORD TO BE IMPUTED WE’LL LOOK AT HISTORIC LEVELS AND DOCUMENT ALL THE FINDINGS THE LAST BULLET POINT TALKS ABOUT RECONCILIATION WE’LL RECONCILE THE DATA WITH OUR ANNUAL SURVEYS OUR QUARTERLY AND MONTHLY PROGRAMS TO MAKE SURE THE DATA ACROSS ALL PROGRAMS MAKE SENSE AND RELY ON OUTSIDE SOURCE DATA FROM OTHER AGENCIES OR TRADE ASSOCIATIONS AND OUTSIDE EXPERTS TO MAKE SURE THE DATA MAKES SENSE BEFORE WE RELEASE WE ARE RELEASING OUR FIRST DATA PRODUCT FROM THE 2017 ECONOMIC

NEXT WEEK SEPTEMBER 19 IT’S THE FIRST-LOOK REPORT AND PRELIMINARY DATA BY INDUSTRY THE DEMAND IS FOR DETAILED DATA THAT DATA WILL COME OUT IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO WITH OUR GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES NEEDS OF THE PRIMARY FEDERAL AGENCIES AND THEIR REQUIREMENTS HAVE THE MOST WEIGHT WE DO WORK AND HAVE DISCUSSIONS WITH DDA, FRB AND CMS ON WHAT THEIR NEEDS ARE WE’LL BE UTILIZING THE NEW ENTERPRISE TOOL FOR DISSEMINATING DATA THEY’RE RELEASES ARE BEING STANDARDIZED TO WHAT WE’RE CONSIDERING THE ECONOMY-WIDE STATISTICS DATA THAT WAY THE DATA BY INDUSTRY ARE CONSISTENT AND COMPARABLE WHEN YOU LOOK ACROSS INDUSTRIES IN PAST CENSUS YEARS WE’D RELEASE RETAIL OR WHOLESALE AND THE DATA WAS NOT ALWAYS RELEASED IN THE SAME FORMAT OR TIME AND NOW WE’RE DOING RELEASES ECONOMY WIDE AS I MENTIONED THE RELEASES START IN SEPTEMBER, THIS MONTH AND THEY’LL BE COMPLETED BY DECEMBER 2021 SO THIS IS CHART THAT SHOWS YOU THE DIFFERENT DATA PRODUCT RELEASES WE HAVE THE FIRST-LOOK REPORT WHICH IS GENERAL STATISTICS AT THE TWO THROUGH SIX DIGIT INDUSTRY LEVEL IT WILL BE RELEASED NEXT WEEK AND WE HAVE THE SERIES TO RELEASE GENERAL STATISTIC DATA REVENUE, PAYROLL, EMPLOYMENT AND OTHER VARIABLES AT THE U.S. STATE AND METRO COUNTY AND PLACE LEVEL AGAIN FOR THE TWO THROUGH SIX-DIGIT INDUSTRIES THOSE WILL START TO BE RELEASED IN JANUARY OF 2020 ON A FLOW BASIS THROUGH NOVEMBER 2020 SO WE’LL BE RELEASING DIFFERENT STATES AND WE’LL RELEASE THE GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED BY INDUSTRY THAT WILL BE RELEASED IN NOVEMBER 2020 AND RELEASES FROM 2020 TO DECEMBER 2021 THE BIG POINT TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE SLIDE IS THROUGH THE SET OF RELEASE THE FIRST LOOK TO THE FINAL THERE’S INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENT AND NEXT WEEK IT’S PRELIMINARY AND AS WE RELEASE THE SERIES THE DATA BECOMES FINAL SO YOU GET BETTER DATA THE FURTHER WE GO ALONG AND MORE SPECIFIC DATA AS WE GO ALONG IL SHOWS HOW ALL THE DATA RELATES THROUGH THE RELEASES THE TOP BAR THAT RUNS ACROSS THE FIRST LOOK REPORT IS U.S LEVEL DATA, PRELIMINARY DATA AND SHOWS ESTABLISH MANIES AND PAYROLL AND REVENUE FOR A PARTICULAR INDUSTRY AND MANUFACTURING THIS IS DATA FROM 2012 THEN WE RELEASE THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA SERIES THE BOXES UNDERNEATH YOU’LL SEE FOR EACH STATE WE NOW PRODUCE THE DATA AND TOTAL EMPLOYMENT, PAYROLL AND REVENUE ACROSS THE 50 STATES AND D.C., IF YOU AGGREGATE THOSE THEY GIVE THE U.S. TOTAL SHOWN IN THE FIRST-LOOK REPORT FROM THERE, WE RELEASE THE PRODUCTS OR GOODS AND SERVICES DATA THE BOTTOM BAR THAT RUNS ACROSS THAT’S TAKING THE TOTAL REVENUE ORIGINALLY REPORTED IN THE FIRST LOOK AND FINALIZED THROUGH THE DATA AND BREAKS OUT THE REVENUE TO THE DIFFERENT GOODS AND SERVICES PRODUCED YOU SEE THE RED LINE CONNECTING THE DATA FROM THE TOP REVENUE SHIPMENTS OF $20 BILLION DOWN TO PASSENGER AND TRUCK TIRES ET SET VA YOU CAN SEE HOW THE — ET SEAT RA YOU CAN SEE — ETCETERA YOU CAN SEE HOW THE DATA CONNECTS THIS IS A QUICK LINK TO SHOW YOU THE RELEASE SCHEDULE PAGE YOU CAN GO IT ON YOUR PONE IT’S BASICALLY THE INFORMATIONIVE JUST PROVIVEDED PROVIDED THEN WE WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR DATA DISSEMINATION RISKS THE BIG ONE BILL WILL TALK ABOUT IS THE IMPACT ON THE DATA RELATED TO DISCLOSURE METHODOLOGY AND THE REQUIREMENTS IN RELEASING THE DATA THE SECOND IS BUDGETARY IMPACTS WE’RE ALWAYS IN A STATE OF TIGHT BUDGETS AND THERE’S RISK TO FUTURE DATA PRODUCTS BEING RELIEVED INCLUDING OUR GEOGRAPHIC SERIES AND PRODUCT TABLES AND FINAL DATA RELEASE TABLES ALL THOSE RELEASES ARE PLANNED FOR BUT WE ALSO NEED THE BUDGET

FUNDS IN ORDER TO SPEND THE TIME TO REVIEW AND RELEASE I THINK BILL WILL TALK ABOUT THE DATA DISSEMINATION ISSUES >> THANKS, BILL AS MENTIONED EARLIER WE USE ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS DATA FROM OTHER AGENCIES IN THE ECONOMIC CENSUS FOR VARIOUS REASONS WHETHER IT’S FOR EDITING, AMPUTATION OR DIRECT SUBSTITUTION IN LIEU OF A RESPONSE? SO THE SOURCE, ONE OF OUR PRIMARY SOURCES OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE DATA IS IRS I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IRS HAS DONE IN TERMS OF THEIR CONFIDENTIAL REQUIREMENTS SO BACK IN SEPTEMBER 2016 OF THE IRS MADE A REVISION TO THE CONFIDENTIALITY REQUIREMENTS FOR AGENCIES THAT RECEIVE AND USE TAX RETURN INFORMATION IN THEIR STATISTICAL REPORTS AND THE PRIMARY CHANGE WAS THEY ADDED ADDITIONAL THRESHOLDS REGARDING THE NUMBER OF TAX RETURNS THAT MUST BE INCLUDED IN A CELL FOR THE ESTIMATE TO BE RELEASED THE GUIDANCE SAID THE AGENCIES MUST ADHERE TO THE IRS GUIDELINES OR EQUIVALENT APPROVED BY THE IRS UP TO THIS POINT, UNTIL THE IRS RELEASED THE REVISIONS, THE CENSUS BUREAU AND THE IRS HAD AN AGREEMENT IN PLACE THAT BASICALLY THE EXISTING CENSUS BUREAU DISCLOSURE METHODS WERE IN FACT TREATED AS AN EQUIVALENT ALTERNATIVE SO BY THAT WE WERE ABLE TO USE I AM — WE WERE ABLE TO ESTABLISH COUNTS OF ESTABLISHMENTS AND FIRMS THAT IS SOMETHING CHANGING WITH THE CHANGE IN THE IRS CONFIDENTIALITY REQUIREMENTS I’LL SHOW A BIT OF THAT IN A MINUTE WE HAVE WORKED ON AN AGREEMENT WHERE WE CERTIFIED BASICALLY THE TWO DISCLOSURE METHODS AND A FORMALLY PRIVATE METHOD YOU HEARD ABOUT FROM JOHN EARLIER THESE ARE ACCEPTABLE EQUIVALENT ALTERNATIVE TO THE IRS REQUIREMENTS THAT SHOW UP IN THEIR PUBLICATION THIS AGREEMENT WAS DONE IN AUGUST OF ’19 AND EFFECTIVELY THE SAME AS THE PRIOR AGREEMENT WE HAD EXCEPT FOR THE CAVEAT ON THE COUNTS I’LL GO INTO THOSE IN A MINUTE WHAT’S THIS MEAN FOR THE ECONOMIC CENSUS? THE IRS’S STIPULATION WAS COULD NO LONGER PUBLIC COUNTS OF ESTABLISHMENTS LESS THAN THREE SO FOR THE ECONOMIC CENSUS, TYPICALLY WE DID NOT TREAT COUNTS OF ESTABLISHMENT OR FIRMS AS SENSITIVE COUNTS OF ONE AND TWO ETCETERA IT’S THE MAGNITUDE DATA WE’VE ALWAYS TREATED AS SENSITIVE I MEAN RECEIPTS, PAYROLL EMPLOYMENT THOSE VALUES WITH THE RULE OF SELF-SUPPRESSION WITH THE ADDITIONAL CAVEAT IT MEANS THERE’LL BE ADDITIONAL CELLS AND COUNTS OF ESTABLISHMENTS WE’LL NO LONGER ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT WE’LL HAVE TO SUPPRESS AND IT ATTEMPTS TO SHOW AT A HIGH LEVEL THE APPROXIMATE NUMBER OF ROSE IN THIS CASE IT’S — ROWS IN THIS CASE IT’S ONLY COUNTS SUPPRESSED SO WHAT THIS TABLE BASICALLY SHOWS THE 18 SECTORS COVERED BY THE ECONOMIC CENSUS THE NEXT ROW, THE SECOND ON THE TABLE, THAT GIVES THE NUMBER OF ROWS WHERE THE ESTABLISHMENT COUNT IS LESS THAN THREE AND THE FOURTH COLUMN IS THE PERCENTAGE WHICH IS COLUMN TWO DIVIDED BY COLUMN THREE AND WHERE THERE’S A FEW NUMBER OF ROWS LESS THAN THREE WE PUB THAT TO THE STATE LEVEL YOU WON’T EXPECT A LOT OF CELLS THAT SHOW UP WHERE HAVE YOU FEWER THAN THREE ESTABLISHMENTS CONTRIBUTING FOR THE OTHER ROWS, AS BILL MENTIONED THE DATA IS PLACED TO THE ECONOMIC PLACE LEVEL YOU CAN SEE FOR THOSE

ROWS, BECAUSE OF THE DETAIL WE’RE PROVIDING YOU’RE EXPRESS NUMBER OF COUNTS — EXPRESSING DID SUPPRESSING THE NUMBER OF COUNTS AND PAYROLL WOULD BE SUPPRESSED BASED ON OUR SUPPRESSION RULES AND THIS LOOKS AT WHAT HAPPENS TO ZIP CODE DATA FOR ZIP CODES THE ONLY THING WE PUBLISH FROM THE ECONOMIC CENSUS ARE COUNTS OF ESTABLISH MANIES BY RECEIPT CLASHES WE DON’T PUBLIC MAGNITUDE DATA AT THE ZIP CODE LEVEL IT SHOWS THE PERCENTAGE OF ROWS SUPPRESSED BY INCREASING THE DETAIL YOU CAN SEE IN THE SECOND COLUMN IT GOES FROM TWO AND THREE-DIGIT WITHIN THE FIRST ROW SECTOR 44 RETAIL TRADE AND YOU CAN SEE THESE PERCENTAGES RANGE FROM ABOUT 37% AND HEALTH CARE AND THE SMALLEST AND UP TO 82% AND THE LEVEL FOR SECTOR 71 WHICH IS ART AND ENTERTAINMENT AND ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENT IN TERMS OF THE PROTECTION OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS FROM THE IRS SO WE HAVE A COUPLE QUESTIONS FOR THE COMMITTEE MAYBE OUR DISCUSSION WILL ADDRESS OR TALK ABOUT AND THEN WE’LL OPEN IT UP LOOKING AHEAD TO THE 2022 ECONOMIC CENSUS, ARE THERE EMERGING FRIENDS THAT MAY NEED TO BE RESEARCHED AND DATA COLLECTED ON SINCE THE CENSUS COLLECTS DATA IN MANY AREAS WE’RE LOOKING FOR FEEDBACK ON CONTENT IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND THE SECOND HAS TO DO WITH THE ISSUES AND CHANGE AND WHAT’S THE IMPACT ON DATA WITH CHANGES IN DISCLOSURE METHODOLOGIES AND HOW SHOULD WE INFORM USERS ON THE EFFECTS OF THE DATA PRODUCTS? >> OKAY THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION MORE GENERALLY TO THE ECONOMIC DIRECTOR AND OTHERS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THE ECONOMIC CENSUS FOR GOOD WORK WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMIC CENSUS THAT MANY AT OUR MEETINGS COMPARED TO OTHER DATA PRODUCTS AND AREAS AT THE CENSUS SO I FOUND THIS INFO GRAPHIC WEB PAGE ABOUT THE USES OF THE ECONOMIC CENSUS AND THOUGHT WE’D PUT THAT UP TO HAVE MORE UNDERSTANDING OF IT IT HAS FIVE TYPES OF INFORMATION OFFERED BY THE ECONOMIC SENSES ALONG WITH POSSIBLE USES YOU’LL NOTICE THE TWO ON THE RIGHT, THE ACCURATE BENCHMARK FOR ECONOMIC INDICATORS AND THE CONSISTENT COMPARABLE COMPREHENSIVE MEASURES, THOSE MAY BE DISPROPORTIONATELY RELEVANT TO ACADEM YOU CAN USERS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE U.S BUSINESSES AND THE INFORMATION ON BUSINESS LOCATION AND SIZE AND THE DATA TO UNDERSTAND BUSINESS COMPETITIVE MIGHT HAVE BROADER USE IN NON-ACADEMIC PURPOSES IT’S WORTH NOTING THERE ARE THREE PRODUCTS AT THE CENSUS THAT ARE ACTUALLY CALLED THE CENSUS THERE’S THE DECENNIAL, ECONOMIC CENSUS AND CENSUS IN GOVERNMENT I’LL RETURN TO THAT WHY DO WE NEED AN ECONOMIC CENSUS? THE MAIN REASON IS TO PROVIDE DATA AT A DETITLE — DETAILED AND GEOGRAPHIC LEVEL FOR EXAMPLE, COUNTY BUSINESS PATTERNS INCLUDES SIX-BIG SIX-DIGIT ESTABLISHMENT AND VALUE AND PAYROLL AND THINGS LIKE ZIP CODE WE LOSE THE EMPLOYMENT IN THE ZIP CODE YOU CAN SEE THE TRADE OFF IN GEOGRAPHIC VERSUS ECONOMIC SPECIFICITY THERE AND THERE’S THE ANNUAL SURVEY OF MANUFACTURERS TO ALLOW NATIONAL DATA WITH SUBINDUSTRY DETAIL BUT

AT THE STATE LEVEL IT’S JUST AT THE SECTOR LEVEL EVERY NOW AND THEN, EVERY FIVE YEARS IN THIS CASE, YOU HAVE TO GO AND GET GOOD INDUSTRY DETAILS AND HAVE TO GET GOOD GEOGRAPHIC DETAIL AND GAINING DATA ON TOTAL ACTIVITY TO BENCHMARK THE MORE FREQUENT SURVEYS AND TO UPDATE THE CENSUS BUREAU’S MASTER LIST OF BUSINESS THE PRESENTATION TALKED ABOUT THE SCHEDULE FOR RELEASES THERE’S SOME KEY CHANGES RELATIVE TO WHAT WE SAW IN 2012 AS I THOUGHT I’D HIGHLIGHT I’M THE MOST CLINKY USER OF THE FACT FINDER SYSTEM AND GLAD TO SEE THE NEW PLATFORM AT DATA.CENSUS.gov IT WILL MAKE MY LIFE EASIER TO THANK YOU FOR THAT AND THE OTHER CHANGE IS THEY’RE USING THE PRODUCT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM FOR DETAILED DATA ON PRODUCT LINES AS I SHOWED, PRODUCT LINE IS DISTINCT FROM INDUSTRY CLASSIFICATIONS SO FOR EXAMPLE, JUST POKING AROUND IN THE 2012 ECONOMIC CENSUS, ONE PRODUCT CODE WAS MEALS AND BEVERAGES PREPARED AND SERVED AND DISPENSED FOR IMMEDIATE CONSUMPTION AND YOU FIND IT ACROSS A RANGE OF INDUSTRIES SOME DISPROPORTIONATELY BUT YOU’LL FIND IT IN HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL ASSISTANCE AND IN RECREATION WHERE IT COMPRISES A SMALL LIKE 6% OF SALES BUT MOST HAVE A PRIMARY PRODUCT CODE WE’RE SCHEDULED TO GET THE PRODUCT BY INDUSTRY AND VICE VERSA IN NOVEMBER 20 AND WITH ALL THE DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT NOW NEEDS TO BE SUPPRESSED, CERTAINLY AT THE LEVEL OF THE ESTABLISHMENT COUNT WE HAVE TO WONDER WHAT HAVE YOU LEFT IN WHAT YOU’RE PRESENTING I APPRECIATE AND WE HEARD NICK SAY YESTERDAY THAT THERE HAD BEEN A BUDGET CUT OF 15% TO 20% IF, I’M NOT MISQUOTING WE HEARD CURRENT BUDGETARY RISKS PLACE A RELEASE OF THE CONTEMPLATED PRODUCTS IN SOME DEGREE OF JEOPARDY THE PAPER I’M MOST PROUD OF HAD IMPERIAL WORK ON THE 1992 ECONOMIC CENSUS SO I THINK YOU HAVE TO OPEN UP THE CONVERSATION ABOUT FOR A GIVEN BUDGET WHAT DIMENSION NEEDS TO CHANGE AND JUST PARENTHETICALLY IF IT BECAME A ONCE EVERY 10-YEAR CENSUS BUT NOT HAVE TO RELY ON THE IRS AND OVERLY RESTRICTIVE CONDITION HERE SO YOU CAN GO OUT AND SURVEY THE OTHER HALF OF THE ESTABLISHMENTS, THEN I GUESS THAT’S ON THE TABLE I’M NOT TRYING TO MAKE THAT DECISION FOR ANYONE BUT THAT WOULD SEEM TO BE THE MOST NATURAL GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE BUDGETARY ENVIRONMENT THE PRESENTATION LEFT US WITH EYE FEW QUESTIONS NOR COMMITTEE THE FIRST WAS LOOKING AHEAD TO THE 2022 ECONOMIC CENSUS AND ARE THERE EMERGING TRENDS THAT NEED TO BE RESEARCHED AND DATA COLLECTED ON AND PUT SOME OUT FOR THE GENERAL DISCUSSION THE FIRST IS THE GIG ECONOMY AS A POSSIBLY GROWING SHARE OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IT INCORPORATES THE IDEA OF BIG AND ADMINISTRATIVE DATA FROM OTHER SOURCES AND THE SECOND IN THE PRESENTATION IS THERE A WAY

TO INTEGRATE DATA ON NON-EMPLOYER BUSINESSES MORE GENERALLY? AND THE THIRD, THIS IS PROBABLY ME SPEAKING A LITTLE BIT OUT OF TURN BUT AS I THINK ABOUT WHAT MIGHT BE RELEVANT TO SOMEONE WONDERING ABOUT A BUSINESS INVESTMENT DECISION FOR A LOCAL GOVERNMENT WORRIED ABOUT ITS ECONOMIC FUTURE OF ITS JURISDICTION, I THINK AS MUCH ABOUT OCCUPATIONS AS INDUSTRIES INDUSTRIES MAY BE THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION SO WHAT DO THEY MAKE HERE PARTICULARLY INDUSTRIES COMBINED WITH PRODUCT CLASSIFICATION THE QUESTION IS WHAT COULD PEOPLE DO HERE IMAGINE YOU’RE IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE AN ENTITY IN YOUR JURISDICTION WILL RELOCATE SOMEWHERE ELSE AND YOU’RE NO LONGER GOING TO MAKE THAT THING THE PROCESS OF ECONOMIC GROWTH DEPENDS ON HOW YOU CAN EMPLOY PEOPLE AND THE SENSE OF WHAT YOU NEED TO EMPLOY IS BASED ON THE SORTS OF SKILLS PEOPLE HAVE SO WHEN I USE THE WORD OCCUPATION I’M USING IT TO SERVE A PROXY FOR THAT AND THERE’S A QUESTION WHETHER THIS IS THE RIGHT PLACE TO GET THAT SORT OF DATA AND I HAVE MORE TO SAY ABOUT THAT I WON’T GO THROUGH THE DETAIL OF THIS BUT I SAID THE GIG ECONOMY THERE ARE TWO SORTS OF COMPANIES IN THE GIG OR SHARING ECONOMY ONE’S UBER, ONE AIRBNB JUST ASK YOURSELF WHERE IN THE ECONOMIC CENSUS WOUL K — WOULD UBER SHOW UP AND THERE’S SOME AMBIGUITY MOST THE TIME WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE DRIVE FOR UBER ASK WHAT INDUSTRY THEY’RE IN IS BECAUSE THEY NEED A STATE LICENSE AND FILL OUT SOMETHING ON THE FORM THIS IS THE GUIDANCE UBER WAS TWO YEARS OLD AT THIS POINT COMPARE THE TOP LINE TO 2007 THERE WAS A 5% INCREASE IN ESTABLISHMENTS THIS IS THE SORT OF QUESTION ABOUT ARE WE GOING TO BE ABLE TO CAPTURE THE ECONOMIC ACTIVITY OF TAXIS WHERE IT’S A BUNCH OF INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS IT’S NOT EVEN CLEAR TO ME ANY OF THAT WOULD NECESSARILY SHOW UP IN THE ECONOMIC CENSUS YOU’LL GET UBER’S HEADQUARTERS HALF THE PEOPLE ASSOCIATED IN AN ECONOMIC CONTEXT WITH UBER I’M NOT SAYING ANYTHING IS WRONG BUT I’M SAYING YOU ASKED FOR AN EMERGING TREND, THAT’S THE ONE THAT IS LEFT TO MIND FIRST THE STATEMENT ABOUT UBER IS CAN YOU PROVIDE FOR PUBLIC USE IN ADDITION TO WHATEVER ROLE IT MIGHT BE PLAYING IN THE BENCHMARKING PROCESS SOMETHING THAT INTEGRATES THE NON-EMPLOYER STATISTICS WHICH THIS GROUP HEARD ABOUT TWICE LAST YEAR INTO WHAT YOU COLLECT FROM THE ECONOMIC CENSUS AND I KNOW IT WAS ENCOURAGING TO FIND ANY EXAMPLE OF EMERGE OF THE NON-EMPLOYER STIFTISTICS WITH THE COUNTY PATTERNS AND WHAT ARE YOU LEARNED THE AVAILABILITY OF THE DATA THAT’S USEFUL IN A LARGER SCALE AND THE THINKING ABOUT OKAY PAYINGS, THERE’S LOTS OF — OCCUPATIONS, THERE’S LOTS OF PLACES WHERE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COLLECTS AND THE HEAVY LEFTING IS DONE OBVIOUSLY AT THE CENSUS, INFORMATION ABOUT OCCUPATION AND INDUSTRY WITH SOME GEOGRAPHIC DETAIL ON IT THE POPULATION SURVEY DOES THAT AND THE SIP DOES THAT YOU CAN SAY WELL, IF YOU WERE A USER AND WANTED TO KNOW THAT, YOU’D HAVE THAT INFORMATION IT WOULD BE REPORT THE INDIVIDUAL RESPOND ENT IN — RESPONDENT IN THOSE CASES SOMETIMES IN THE MEASUREMENT OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY YOU HAVE BOTH A WAY OF GETTING THE INFORMATION ON THE HOUSEHOLD AND A WAY OF GETTING THE INFORMATION FROM THE EMPLOYER OR THE ESTABLISHMENT THE MONTHLY EMPLOYMENT REPORT IS A GOOD EXAMPLE THAT OFTEN CREATES A BIT OF CONFUSION

THERE’S A HOUSEHOLD SURVEY AND AN ESTABLISHMENT SURVEY SO THE QUESTION AND MOTIVATION I DESCRIBED EARLIER IS WHETHER YOU WOULD EVER THINK THAT IT WOULD BE WORTH GETTING INFORMATION FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT ABOUT SOMETHING ON THE SKILL PROXIED HERE BY OCCUPATION OF THE WORKFORCE THERE TAT AN OPEN QUESTION I DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER IS YES TO THE EXTENT THE ANSWER IS YES, YOU HAVE TO ASK WHAT IS THE INCREMENTAL VALUE OF DOING THAT ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT’S AVAILABLE IN THE HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS I DESCRIBED I KNOW THE BLS HAS THE OCCUPATIONAL EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S A SURVEY DONE BY THE CENSUS BUREAU ON THEIR BEHALF I FOUND THE SURVEY CHALLENGING TO WORK WITH AND I THINK THERE’S DISCLAIMERS ON THE WEBSITE SAYING NOT RELIABLE FOR COMPARISONS OVER TIME I’M A POTENTIAL USER INTERESTED IN THAT AND IN MY FINAL SLIDE I ALLUDED TO EARLIER, FOR THE PURPOSES OF DESCRIBING WHAT IS LOST PERCENTAGE OF ROWS SUPPRESSED IS A PORTION BUT SOMETHING ABOUT THE PERCENTAGE OF REVENUE OR SHIPMENTSSHIPMENTS WEIGHTING THAT INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL AND FOR THE DISSEMINATION QUESTION YOU HAVE TO LET THE FOCUS GROUP GUIDE YOU AND THAT IS WHERE I WOULD START I WOULD SAY THAT IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE SUBJECT TO THE IRS RULES RELYING ON THE ADMINISTRATIVE DATA AND THEY CALL THE TUNE AND THE BUDGETARY ENVIRONMENT IS NOT SUCH YOU CAN CONTEMPLATE GETTING ALL OF IT, MORE OF IT YOURSELVES, THEN MAYBE THERE’S A DIFFERENT ROLE FOR THE CENSUS BUREAU TO PLAY I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO LEARN WHEN YOU ABIDE BY THE PROCEDURES FOR THE 2017 WHICH PARTS OF THE USER COMMUNITY ARE IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE YOU ARE IN THE POSITION OF SEEING WHAT NEEDS PEOPLE HAVE DISASTER RECOVERY OR THE LIKE, YOU ARE DATA EXPERTS IN ADDITION TO THE DATA IN ADDITION TO DATA COLLECTORS AND DISSEMINATORS AND I SUSPECT YOU’LL DISCOVER YOU HAVE SOME VALUE TO THE USER COMMUNITY THERE LET ME PAUSE THERE AND SAY THANK YOU TO THE TEAM FOR THE GOOD WORK THEY’RE DOING >> THANK YOU, ANDREW WAS THERE SOMETHING YOU NEEDED TO RESPOND TO FIRST OR PRN IT UP TO OTHER PER SHARE OPEN IT UP TO OTHER QUESTIONS? I SEE JOE HAS HIS TENT UP I THINK THAT’S LEFT OVER COOL ONE PABLO — JUAN PABLO >> FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA I HEARD THE HAWK EYE STATE IS RANKED NUMBER ONE GOOD TO HEAR I ALSO HAVE THE GIG ECONOMY LIKE ANDREW HAD TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION I THOUGHT IF ANOTHER AREA THAT MAYBE YOU’RE CAPTURING ALREADY, I DON’T KNOW, THAT’S REMOTE WORK PEOPLE ESPECIALLY IN THE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY WHERE THE ESTABLISHMENT MAY BE IN ONE PLACE BUT THEY’RE PHYSICALLY LOCATED ELSEWHERE, SOMETIMES THERE MAY BE U.S. CITIZENS WHO MAY LIVE ABROAD AND DO WORK REMOTELY I THINK IT WILL INCREASE IT MAY BE INTERESTING TO THINK ABOUT HOW TO CAPTURE THAT INFORMATION IF IT’S NOT ALREADY BEEN CAPTURED THEN I HAVE ONE IDEA GIVEN THE BUDGET CONSTRAINT BUT IT’S TO PERHAPS GIVE BACK TO THE ESTABLISHMENTS THAT RESPONDED AND MAYBE SOME WHO DIDN’T RESPOND AND WHEN YOU RELEASE THE DATA FOR 2017, GET BACK TO THEM AND SAY HERE’S SOME THING RELATED TO YOUR SECTOR OR YOUR GEOGRAPHY SO IN A WAY GIVING THEM VALUE FOR THE EFFORT THEY’VE PUT IN TO RESPOND OR PERHAPS WITH A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT SINCE 2022 IS AROUND THE CORNER HOPEFULLY

THEY’LL REMEMBER THE VALUE AGAIN, MAYBE NOT GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE OF BUDGET CONSTRAINTS BUT WE COULD PUT THAT ONE IN THE WOULD BE NICE COLUMN THAT’S ALL I HAVE >> THANK YOU ANYONE ELSE?
