Census Stories Beyond the Numbers


On Aug. 12, the U.S. Census Bureau will release in-depth demographic statistics from the 2020 census. The data will reveal how the ethnic, racial and voting age makeup of neighborhoods, cities, counties and states has changed since the 2010 census, as well as inform political redistricting. 

This once-a-decade data dump is immense, detailed, highly technical — and massively influential in communities across the United States. Journalists from all beats will use this data in their reporting for years to come. This webinar, part of Poynter’s training series on the 2020 census and timed the day before this data is released, will help journalists prepare to cover their changing communities, now and in the future. 

This webinar is offered tuition-free, and is part of Poynter’s ongoing census training series. This effort is led by Big Local News at Stanford University, Census Reporter at Northwestern University and the Associated Press, and is made possible with support from the Google News Initiative and in cooperation with the JSK Journalism Fellowships.
