These meetings are open to citizens of federally recognized tribes by invitation. The Census Bureau’s Decennial Directorate and the Intergovernmental Affairs Office are responsible for the development and implementation of outreach and promotion activities to assist in obtaining a complete and accurate census count in 2020 among all residents, including the American Indian and Alaska Native populations. This program is one part of the overall outreach and promotion efforts directed at building awareness about the importance of the Census Bureau’s commitment to produce quality 2020 American Indian and Alaska Native data for all tribal communities and organizations. In accordance with Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, issued November 6, 2000, the Census Bureau is adhering to its tribal consultation policy by seeking the input of tribal governments in the planning and implementation of the 2020 Census with the goal of ensuring the most accurate counts and data for the American Indian and Alaska Native population. In that regard, we are seeking comments to the following operational topics: 1. 2020 Disclosure Avoidance System 2. American Indian and Alaska Native Geography Hierarchy Through the national tribal consultation webinar, Census Bureau staff will provide tribal communities with further details on disclosure avoidance methodology.
