Suburbs and the 2010 Census
July 14 - July 16, 2011
Over the past several decades, suburbs have experienced tremendous demographic and socioeconomic change. The release of Census 2000 received national attention, as it revealed striking patterns of new suburban growth, diversity, class segregation, immigrant settlement, and poverty. Since then, academics, policymakers, and professionals have become ever more focused on suburban and metropolitan policy issues, and have eagerly awaited the release of new tract-level data.
In late 2010, the U.S. Bureau of the Census will begin releasing American Community Survey (ACS) data for the previous five years. This data release will finally enable analysts to undertake up-to-date analyses at the census tract and block-group levels that have not been possible for nearly a decade. “Suburbs and the 2010 Census” will give them a timely opportunity to present their work.
Possible presentation themes/topics may include, but are not limited to, suburban inequality, poverty, diversity, segregation, immigrant settlement, the subprime / foreclosure crisis, housing vacancies, senior citizens, homelessness, transportation, health, sustainability, and methodological issues. Abstracts of 250 words or less should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2011. Please contact Katrin Anacker with any questions (e-mail: email@example.com, phone 703.993.2262).
