January 2022 Linkage Seminar – The Decennial Census Digitization and Linkage project
For this month’s Linkage Seminar, Amy O’Hara will be joined by the US Census Bureau’s Katie R. Genadek to discuss the Decennial Census Digitization and Linkage project (DCDL). The DCDL will digitize and link individual records across the 1960-1990 censuses and create tools to improve the dissemination of these data. When combined with already-available linkages between the censuses of 1940, 2000, 2010, and soon-to-be 2020, DCDL will complete a massive longitudinal data infrastructure covering almost the entire U.S. population since 1940. The resulting data resource will provide transformational opportunities for research, education, and evidence-building across the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. We will discuss the project’s innovative methods of data capture, record linkage, and restricted data access.
