The Census Bureau has several programs to assist journalists in using Census Bureau data. Our staff:
The Census Bureau PIO offers online webinars to members of the media to learn about Census Bureau related products. Webinars, short for web-based seminars, are effective electronic learning platforms. These news conferences consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. During online news conferences, reporters have the opportunity to ask questions once the presentation is complete. See the Census Data Academy for a list of upcoming Webinars, and recorded Webinars.
For accredited media — Access to the Census Bureau's news embargo site is limited to qualified individuals representing media outlets that give their chief attention to the gathering and reporting of news. Applicants must be employed or represent news outlets that regularly publish or broadcast a substantial volume of news material for public consumption. Embargo access is granted on an individual basis only and should not be shared with unapproved colleagues or associates. Learn more about our Embargo Policy and Accreditation Guidelines under Embargo Policy.
