Speakers: David Van Riper, Minnesota Population Center

This Friday, David Van Riper from the Minnesota Population Center will present on differential privacy, the 2020 Decennial Census, and subsequent implications for social scientists. A team of IPUMS research scientists, led by Van Riper, analyzed the implementation of differential privacy by the Census Bureau and the impact on the accuracy of summary data tables. This presentation will provide an overview of differential privacy, describe the Census Bureau’s proposed algorithm, discuss the policy decisions required for its implementation, analyze the differentially private 2010 decennial data released by the Bureau, and discuss steps the Bureau is taking to improve their implementation.
