ABSTRACT: The decennial census is fast approaching. The 2020 Census Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP) offers regional planning organizations, councils of governments, and local governments the opportunity to review and modify select statistical boundaries that the U.S. Census Bureau uses to collect data in your community, so that we can give you the most relevant, useful information possible. Statistical boundaries let us give you the small-area statistics and spatial data you need. The 2020 PSAP geography review includes census tracts, block groups, Census Designated Places, Census County Divisions, and for the first time, American Indian and Alaska Native areas. Data made available by Census for these statistical areas is often used in grant applications to fund community and regional development, education, agriculture, energy, and environmental programs, as well as other needed community improvements and enhancements. You know your local community best. By participating in PSAP, you can help us provide relevant, useful data about population, income, and housing for small-geographic analyses. The Census Bureau will use the statistical areas defined for the 2020 Census to tabulate data for the 2020 Census, Annual Population Estimates Program, the American Community Survey (ACS), and Economic Census throughout the decade. Come learn more about PSAP today. The next opportunity to review and delineate statistical areas will not come again until Census 2030!
