March 8, 2011
Time:2-3:15 p.m.
Description:Bob Groves, director, U.S. Census Bureau, gives a talk titled "The 23rd Census of the United States, Official Statistics, and the Academic Discipline of Statistics."

Under constitutional requirements, the Census Bureau conducts a full census of the U.S. resident population every 10 years. Like much social science research, the U.S. Census is shaped by features of scientific measurement associated with self-report by humans. Unlike most social science surveys, however, the Census collects data from the entire population and does not use the traditional inferential paradigms of statistics. The absence of sampling also necessitates a vast, logistically complex operation to ensure that Census data are complete and measurement is performed in a uniform way. Groves' talk begins by reviewing this operation for the 2010 Census.
