Research and the Census

In February, USU Libraries sponsored a panel discussion, Research and the Census: USU Perspectives, which explored how Census Data impacts USU research and discussed the 2020 Census. The census provides rich data for researchers across academic disciplines, and as of this posting, data collection is ongoing.

Panelists included:

  • Don Albrecht, Western Rural Development Center
  • Eduardo Ortiz, Center for Persons with Disabilities
  • Jessica Ulrich-Schad, Sociology
  • Patrick Singleton, Civil Engineering
  • Lawrence Culver, History

The panel was sponsored by the Merrill-Cazier Library Government Information Program (part of Special Collections & Archives) and Learning & Engagement Services. A display about Census history is currently on view in the Government Information Department. You can learn about Census basics at: http://libguides.usu.edu/censusbasics.
