... § 9(a) continues to forbid the secretary of commerce to "make any publication whereby the data furnished by any particular establishment or individual under this title can be identified." The practical import of this is that, for over a century and for nearly as long as the Census Bureau has existed in its present form, it has had to balance its inherent, ingrained mission of collecting and producing highquality statistical information for the public good with a staunch, rigorous mandate to avoid disclosing information about any individual.

... The intent was to spur census data users and stakeholders to replicate their analyses using the DDP to determine how the results compare to the 2010 Census tables that were produced using the data swapping and other disclosure avoidance techniques employed in that census. (The Census Bureau alone has the authority and access necessary to compare the results to census returns 1 The release of personally identifiable information from census records 72 years after enumeration is governed by an October 1952 agreement between the Census Bureau and what is now the National Archives and Records Administration and supported by reference to said agreement in 44 U.S.C.

... Second, the charge for the workshop clearly emphasizes that it should elicit use cases external to the Census Bureau, yet there are ways that the Census Bureau uses decennial census data within its own walls that are of keen interest to the broader data user community. Notable among these are the Census Bureau's program for producing population estimates between decennial censuses, using the most current census as a base.
From page 5...
... Chapters 2–9 are the core of the workshop and these proceedings, taking major "use cases" of decennial census data in turn, describing the issues raised by a change in the disclosure avoidance methodology and exploring data user analysis of the 2010 DDP relative to those use cases. The second deviation from the workshop agenda is that it made sense for the sake of pacing to divide the use case of identification of small and special populations into two blocks, split between the two days, with another, shorter presentation block between them.

... The views contained in the proceedings are those of individual workshop participants and do not necessarily represent the views of all workshop participants, the planning committee, or the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
