Census Analysis: The Potential & Perils of Categorization

This program led by Dr. Phong Le - Associate Professor of Mathematics in the Center for Data, Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Goucher College - will explore three examples of the census and the potential and peril of categorization, primarily by race. Presenter and participants will compare the U.S., Mauritian, and Rwandan census, their respective histories, and how they look today. Discussion will include some of the immigration question issues. During the second half of the program there will be a more in-depth tutorial of using American Fact Finder, and the way that we, as the public, engage with U.S. census data.
