*Subject:* Speaking with Users of Census Data
I’m leading a design team that is helping the Census Bureau to improve the
user experience for finding and downloading Census data. The vision is to
discover and create more ideal processes/tools in a way that’s informed by
the experience and needs of real users.
To inform this effort, we’re setting up qualitative interviews with
regular users of Census data -- people like you.
Would you be willing to talk with me and my team to share your experience
about finding and accessing Census data? We’re planning a redesign over the
coming year that will be based on what we learn from this field research.
We will prototype designs for user-centered processes/webpages, which we
will want to bounce off real users. Building a pool of relevant volunteers
will help drive these test & learn cycles.
If you’d like to volunteer your perspective, please email me at
Please include your name, your preferred contact information, and a brief
summary of your role or affiliation. I’ll save that information to a
spreadsheet and reach back out to the volunteers as we move forward. We
will be speaking with small groups of about 1-5 people at a time.
Additionally, is there anyone else in your network who you think we should
be talking to?
Thank you very much for your time and consideration. We really appreciate
Looking forward >
