2020 Census Technical Meeting with Navajo Nation


The Census Bureau strives to build partnerships with tribal nations and engage with tribes individually to ensure accurate counts of tribal citizens. In October 2019, the Census Bureau and Navajo Nation convened for a technical meeting to discuss several topics of concern to the tribe, which included:

  • Special data tabulations for the Eastern Navajo Agency to ensure the Census Bureau counts Navajo households on non-trust lands
  • Tools and materials for promoting the decennial census to Navajo constituents
  • Residence criteria for Navajo citizens temporarily living away from the reservation
  • The Census Bureau’s approach to defining housing units
  • Limitations of the printed census form to record detailed race data for all members of large households
