The 16th episode of the Evidence-to-Impact Podcast tackles all things related to the U.S. Census. We discussed the decennial Census, the data products created and released from the U.S. Census Bureau, the current demographic trends and challenges, and measuring hard-to-reach populations.
We spoke to Raeven Chandler, Ph.D., director of the Pennsylvania Population Network (PPN) at the Population Research Institute (PRI), and assistant research professor of rural sociology at Penn State, and Eric Jensen, Ph.D., senior technical expert for demographic analysis in the Population Division at the U.S. Census Bureau, about their work as demographers, both in academic and government settings, and some issues around collecting and analyzing data, especially as it pertains to the 2020 Census.
