SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The agenda for the November 2 and 3 meetings will include discussions on the American Community Survey, Census 2000 update, early evaluation results, and other census information. We are still finalizing the details of the meeting's agenda.

The CACs on the American Indian and Alaska Native Populations, the African American Population, the Asian Population, the Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Populations, and the Hispanic Population are composed of nine members each. The Secretary of Commerce appoints the members. The Committees provide an organized and continuing channel of communication between the representative communities and the Census Bureau. They assist the Census Bureau in its efforts to reduce the differential undercount for Census 2000 and advise on ways that census data can best be disseminated to communities and other users. They provide advice and recommendations for the Census Bureau to consider in planning the 2010 census and the American Community Survey.

All meetings are open to the public, and a brief period will be set aside on November 3 for public comment and questions. Individuals with extensive questions or statements must submit them in writing to the Committee Liaison Officer, named above, at least three days before the meeting.

These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to the Committee Liaison Officer at least three days prior to the meeting.
