Planning in Progress
A division of the Maryland Department of Planning (Planning), the Maryland State Data Center (MSDC) is the state’s primary liaison with the Census Bureau.
MSDC provides Maryland residents, businesses, and local governments with demographic and socioeconomic statistics. It also produces the state’s official population and household projections and develops school enrollment forecasts.
Each fall the Maryland State Data Center hosts an annual meeting and demonstration workshop for its network of affiliates and socioeconomic researchers from across the state. The meeting agenda addresses recent and upcoming Census releases and on data access tools.

The morning event will also include a briefing on the collaboration between Planning and the U.S. Census Bureau.
