Lecture Recap and Video: Jason Jurjevich on 'Navigating Differential Privacy In Decennial Census Data'

Feb. 20, 2022

The U.S. Census Bureau recently implemented differential privacy, beginning with the 2020 Census, to protect individual confidentiality in census data. However, improving data privacy introduces error that will render less accurate data, especially for population subgroups, sub-county geographies and less-populated areas. In this talk, I review the history of data protections leading up to differential privacy and outline important takeaways for planners and real estate professionals working with census data.
