News for Stakeholders

MACS works closely with the Census Project to ensure public data is strong and adequately funded. We look to the Census Project for monthly updates on developments in Census funding, and for news out of the Census Bureau that data users and advocates need to know. These monthly updates are your best source for being an informed advocate for Census data.
