The Decennial Census Advisory Committee is composed of a Chair, Vice-Chair, and up to 40 member organizations, all appointed by the Secretary of Commerce. The Committee considers the goals of the decennial census and users' needs for information provided by that census. The Committee provides an outside user perspective about how research and design plans for the 2010 decennial census, and the development of the American Community Survey and other related programs, will realize those goals and satisfy those needs. The members of the Advisory Committee draw on their experience with Census 2000 planning and operational processes, results of research studies, test censuses, and results of the Census 2000 Evaluation Program to provide input on the design and related operations of the 2010 decennial census, the American Community Survey, and other related programs.

A brief period will be set aside at the meeting for public comment. However, individuals with extensive statements for the record must submit them in writing to the Commerce Department official named above at least three working days prior to the meeting. Seating is available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

The meeting is physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to the Census Bureau Committee Liaison Officer on 301-457-2308, TDD 301-457-2540.
