Opportunity to share input on data.census.gov

The Center for Behavioral Science Methods, with the assistance of RTI International, is conducting research to improve the Census Bureau data dissemination website data.census.gov. Each participant in the study will receive $40. (Federal employees are not eligible to receive the $40.)

The research team would like to talk with people who meet one or both of the following criteria:

  • Use data from data.census.gov or other statistical sites (for example, sites with demographic/economic data) for research or decision-making.
  • Used American FactFinder in the past to analyze or download data.

If you know anyone who meets EITHER of these criteria, please let them know of this research opportunity.

The study session will last approximately 60 minutes and will take place virtually using Microsoft Teams to video conference with Census Bureau staff. The study concludes on June 15, 2022. While current federal employees are allowed to participate in off-duty time, they are not eligible to receive the incentive payment.

Please have interested participants complete a short questionnaire or contact Patrick Hsieh at 312-777-5234 or yph@rti.org for further information. Please mention the code DATA WEBSITE if you call or email.
