In Case You Missed It!
The U.S. Census Bureau (USCB) released the initial 2020 Census data to all states on Thursday, August 12 following a 1:00 p.m. press conference. A summary of the raw data has been posted to the Maryland Department of Planning (Planning) State Data Center website. Planning also tabulated housing units and population, which is also posted.
The data released by the USCB includes total population at the state, county, municipal, census tract, and census block levels; population over 18 years old; and group quarters populations.
More Census data will be released early next year, but Planning does not have a specific date for the data release. Planning will inform Planning Practice Monthly readers when we learn more about the USCB’s release schedule.
