2020 Census Tribal Consultation; Virtual Public Meeting
The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) will conduct its final calendar year 2020 tribal consultation meeting on December 16 via a webinar. The tribal consultation meetings reflect the Census Bureau's commitment to strengthen government-to-government relationships with federally recognized tribes. The Census Bureau will provide updates and seek input on the 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System (DAS). The Census Bureau conducted one national tribal consultation webinar in September 2019 and two formal tribal consultation meetings in October 2019 specific to the 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System. The Census Bureau is planning one national webinar on December 16, 2020 with federally recognized tribes, which will provide a forum for tribes to receive an update and to provide input on the 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance System regarding work done specifically for the American Indian and Alaska Native tribal areas. The Census Bureau will provide information directly to tribes prior to the national webinar to give tribes time to review and provide input.
