2020 Census: What Do We Know, and Can We Trust It?

In-Person Lunch & Learn

Bring your lunch and join us at the Johnson Center on Wednesday, May 24 for an in-person presentation on 2020 U.S. Census data, presented in partnership with the West Michigan Research Network!

Jeff Williams, director of our Community Data and Research Lab, will give an overview of the 2020 Census results and discuss the impact on our communities now and in the future. The discussion is timely, as the Census Bureau has announced that it is releasing the first of a series of detailed results from the 2020 census beginning on May 25 (the Demographic and Housing Characteristics File and the Demographic Profile).

Following the presentation, Dave Riley of the West Michigan Research Network will lead an interactive Q&A session.

Price: Free
Location: In person at the Johnson Center
201 Front Ave SW, Second Floor, Grand Rapids, MI 49504

Who should attend?
This event is open to the public and is designed for nonprofit professionals and community members interested in learning about data to inform research, decision-making, and planning across West Michigan. All are welcome!
