The U.S. Census Bureau is gearing up for 2020 by soliciting feedback through programs like the Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS), Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA), and the Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP). The latter is an initiative to ensure that statistical geographies like tracts and block groups are delineated in a way that best supports future data analysis.
DRCOG will be participating in PSAP on behalf of stakeholders in our region. This means that we will delineate new census geographies as needed or requested by data users. To ensure statistical validity of its products, the U.S. Census Bureau will require us to make changes to geographies that are outside of its recommended thresholds for minimum and maximum households. Beyond that, we are invited to make additional changes that we deem necessary based on our local knowledge of expected development patterns.
Although DRCOG is tasked with coming up with the official “PSAP plan” that gets submitted to the U.S. Census Bureau, we know there are many parties that would like to have a say in the final product.
