Every ten years, since 1790, the United States has conducted a census of its population. Next year, on April 1, 2010, the United States Census Bureau will conduct its 2010 decennial census. Preparation for this effort began long ago with a focus on enhancing partnerships with state and local agencies. Many of these partnership efforts have involved an increase in the use of locally provided GIS data. Lane Council of Governments has been involved in a number of Census programs aimed at utilizing local data and expertise in order to improve Census 2010 results. This poster will describe those programs as well as give examples of how Census data are used at LCOG.
