    U.S. Census - Participant Statistical Areas Program

    Is anyone participating in the Participant Statistical Areas Program offered by the Census Bureau? Apparently the PSAP allows designated reviewers the opportunity to update 2000 statistical areas (e.g. tracts, block groups, and census designated places) prior to the next census. PSAP

    Our community has been offered the chance to participate. I'm hesitant to participate just because of lack of manpower but realize it could be worthwhile.

    I have verbly committed my city and county to participate.
    I was the staffperson who did it for the 2000 Census and they accepted all of my recommendations.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Time Spent - probably less than a week,
    but remember your community census map and the related data will have to live with those adjustments for 10 years.

    Found a write up I had done about what was involved -
    ... analyzed and sent back both written and map recommendations for both situations. We discussed our intial recommendations with other City and County Census Data users who agreed with our sugestions. The population recommendations included combining some adjacent tracts and block groups, and splitting a few along township lines or major roads that were already boundaries in adjacent tracts. The boundary recommendations involved moving boundary lines to identifiable features, and where a boundary was not necessary because of the area being combined.
