The Census bureau has proposed criteria for geography for the 2020 census in the Federal Register. The criteria is open for comment until May 16, 2018. Click here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/02/15 and scroll to Census Bureau for the proposed criteria most relevant to you! (Census Block Groups, Census County Divisions and Equivalent Entities, Census Designated Places, and Census Tracts).
The CTPP oversight board strongly urges you to read the notices, respond as appropriate, and get involved in the Participant Statistical Areas Process (PSAP), as custom small geography in the CTPP tabulation will be discontinued after the next tab. Please see attached memo.

[Population Reference Bureau] Update from American Community Survey
Data Users Group
*Webinar: Mapping Reliability with ACS Data*
Join us for a webinar on Mar 08, 2018 from 2:00-3:00 PM EST.
The American Community Survey (ACS) provides data users with unique
insights into the socioeconomic characteristics of local populations.
Mapping the data is one way to examine differences in characteristics
across geographic areas. However, ACS estimates are subject to sampling
variability, so reality on the ground may differ from survey results.
In this webinar, *Joel Alvarez* and *Joe Salvo* (both with the
Population Division, NYC Department of City Planning) will provide
guidance in mapping ACS data. They will also demonstrate how to produce
statistically reliable maps, using their publicly available Map
Their presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. This webinar
will be recorded for those who are unable to participate in the live event.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing
information about joining the webinar.
