The 2021 Census Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) is an annual opportunity for tribal, state, and local governments to review and update the U.S. Census Bureau's legal boundary data.
Changes to Geographic Boundaries in Census Data
The BAS webinar will provide a high-level overview of BAS, demonstrate how to complete a BAS submission using the Geographic Update Partnership Software (GUPS) and the BAS Partnership Toolbox for ArcGIS, and how to return BAS updates using the Secure Web Incoming Module (SWIM).
Economic Data by Geography
Census Bureau’s subject matter experts also provided information on varying economic geographies in this recorded webinar.
In this training, the Census Bureau will show you how to select geographic components like urban and rural, find which geographies are compatible with a dataset, and how to use the mapping feature on data.census.gov.
You will also learn tips and tricks that will help with the selection of complex geographies like census tracts and block groups, vintage-based geographies, and geographies that fall within other geographies.
You will learn how to use economic geographies to do a trend analysis, how to find unique characteristics of changes over time and how it may affect your data.
Discover how economic geographies compare to demographic ones.
The webinar includes a segment on available resources and data tools with the opportunity for Q&A.
