The 2020 Census will be like no decennial census before it. The Census Bureau is reengineering key processes to make the 2020 count the most technologically advanced decennial census ever taken—including innovative techniques and technology as well as new data sources—while still producing quality results.
Lisa Blumerman is the U.S. Census Bureau’s Associate Director for the Decennial Census Programs. She provides executive leadership and direction for the 2020 Census, the American Community Survey and for the Census Bureau’s Geographic Programs.
From 2008 through 2013, Blumerman was Chief of the Governments Division at the Census Bureau. She was responsible for overseeing data collection and the development and release of statistics on the characteristics and key indicators of our nation's federal, state and local governments. In this capacity, Blumerman directed and managed the Census of Governments and 25 annual and quarterly surveys that measure government activity.
