With heightened concerns nationwide about data confidentiality and diminished trust in the federal government, lawyers in all practice areas may find themselves being asked about the Census 2020, which begins nationwide in March, by their clients. This panel provides lawyers with a background on Census 2020, the content of the Census form, what the data is used for, how it will be collected, and the legal and other protections on Census data confidentiality. Lawyers will be equipped to answer basic inquiries from clients, as well as learn about the hotlines available to refer clients and others with regard to census matters.
