News | July 20, 2021

The Imperial County Transportation Commission received a presentation from the U.S. Census Bureau regarding the U.S. Census Bureau 2021 – Imperial County Data Summit & Community data on July 14, 2021 at the Management Committee meeting. It was announced that many cities had a double digit increase in response for Imperial Valley cities, with more than a 4% increase compared to 2010. 
 
The Census Bureau held their first kickoff workshop on July 14, 2021, hosted by the Census Legacies table, the U.S. Census Bureau, and the center for Social Innovation at UC Riverside. The purpose of the workshop was to empower community members through a series of live demonstrations and training on how to easily access the U.S Census data and tools directly on their official websites. The event was also an opportunity to establish a partnership with local U.S Census Bureau representatives that can answer questions, provide resources, as well as hear community feedback and ideas. The next event with a total of five workshops is set to be on held on July 30, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. The goal is to promote Regional Equity, targeting the input of the youth department.
