forum for tribes to receive an update
and to provide input on the 2020
Census Disclosure Avoidance System
regarding work done specifically for the
American Indian and Alaska Native
tribal areas. The Census Bureau will
provide information directly to tribes
prior to the national webinar to give
tribes time to review and provide input.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Background
The Census Bureau’s procedures for
outreach, notice, and consultation
ensure involvement of tribes, to the
extent practicable and permitted by law,
before making decisions or
implementing policies, rules, or
programs that affect federally
recognized tribal governments. These
meetings are open to citizens of
federally recognized tribes by invitation.
The Census Bureau’s Decennial
Directorate and the Intergovernmental
Affairs Office have been responsible for
the development and implementation of
outreach and promotion activities to
assist in obtaining a complete and
accurate census count in 2020 among all
residents, including the American
Indian and Alaska Native populations.
This program is one part of the overall
outreach and promotion efforts directed
at building awareness about the
importance of the Census Bureau’s
commitment to produce quality 2020
American Indian and Alaska Native data
for all tribal communities and
organizations.
In accordance with Executive Order
13175, Consultation and Coordination
with Indian Tribal Governments, issued
November 6, 2000, the Census Bureau
has adhered to its tribal consultation
policy by seeking the input of tribal
governments in the planning and
implementation of the 2020 Census with
the goal of ensuring the most accurate
counts and data for the American Indian
and Alaska Native population. In that
regard, we are seeking comments to the
following operational topics:
1. 2020 Census Disclosure Avoidance
System
2. American Indian and Alaska Native
Geography Hierarchy
Through the national tribal
consultation webinar, Census Bureau
staff will provide tribal communities
with further details on the disclosure
avoidance methodology being
considered for the 2020 Census. For

Accordingly, EDA has initiated
investigations to determine whether
increased imports into the United States
of articles like or directly competitive

total or partial separation of the firms’
workers, or threat thereof, and to a
decrease in sales or production of each
petitioning firm.
