BALANCING UTILITY AND PRIVACY:
USEFUL DATA FROM THE 2020 CENSUS?


by

JOSEPH J. SALVO
and
JOEL ALVAREZ
NYC Department of City Planning



Abstract

The mission of the Census Bureau is to provide data that can be used to draw a picture of the nation, from the smallest towns and villages to the neighborhoods of the largest cities. Advances in computer science, better record linkage technology, and the proliferation of large public data sets have all increased the risk of disclosing information about individuals in the census. At the same time, efforts to protect privacy -- however well-intentioned -- may pose a threat to the content, quality and usefulness of the very data that defines the Census Bureau's mission and that demographers rely on to draw a portrait of the nation's communities.
