Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP)

Legally defined geographic areas are important, but they’re not the only kinds of geography for which local governments need data. The PSAP helps local, regional, and tribal government fill in their data gaps by defining statistical boundaries, including tribal statistical boundaries, in their community where no legal boundaries exist. These boundaries define how their communities will get data from the 2020 Census and the next decade of American Community Surveys. By participating in the PSAP, you can make sure that local, state, and federal agencies have good demographic data about your community for planning and funding. This preliminary discussion on the Participant Statistical Area Program, (also known as the Census Tract Program) is designed for those key individuals at the county and local level who utilize tract-level census data for planning purposes.  This meeting is also appropriate for heavy demographic data users who base research and policy decisions on Census Tract, Block Group, or Census Designated Place definitions.
