 Working Group for Census Geospatial Data Minimize

The Working Group for Census Geospatial Data was established by the Management and Operations Committee in October 2013. The purpose of the Working Group is to ensure that collaborative efforts to develop statewide datasets in North Carolina accommodate timely data sharing with the Census Bureau.   The goal, where possible, is to provide consolidated statewide datasets derived from the best available data that are complete, consistent, current, well documented, reliable, and trustworthy. 

The Working Group will engage representatives of working groups of the Statewide Mapping Advisory Committee and other stakeholders to develop plans for providing up-to-date data to the Census Bureau in support of the 2020 Census and Census surveys.  See the Working Group for Census Geospatial Data Charter for more information.
