Census Bureau’s New Differential Privacy Methodology & Potential Health Data Implications
Tuesday, March 31, 2020 2:00 -3:30 p.m. ET

Sponsor: CDC
Changes to Census 2020 Methodology: What Are They and How Will They Impact Your Work?
Starting in 2020, the Census Bureau will be implementing a new stringent disclosure avoidance measure called differential privacy. This procedure, which introduces noise into enumerated population counts, will have important implications for two of the most widely used scientific data sources in the world (decennial census and American Community Survey). Though state population counts will remain unaltered, all other geographic levels could be subjected to noise injection, which will impact many sectors, including public health. It is important for public health practitioners to understand the implications of this change and to develop a set of best practices. In this webinar, speakers will discuss the details of differential privacy, the underlying policy rationale, and provide examples of its potential public health implications.
