Visiting Census

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

I’m visiting the US Census Bureau this week, so there’s a good chance there will be a few days I don’t post anything. Hopefully not though. I have a couple of things scheduled. But in case I go radio silent for a few days, you’ll know why. It’ll be back to normal next week.

  • That’s very cool. I interviewed at the Census Bureau when I was graduating college and even back then (1977) they were doing amazing data graphics with large (at the time) amounts of data. We expect a full report, of course!

  • Awesome, I do hope you write about the experience if you’re able. Having spent so much time with census data recently, I’ve become very curious about how the operate.

  • Looking forward to the presentation tomorrow.

I wanted to see how daily patterns emerge at the individual level and how a person’s entire day plays out. So I simulated 1,000 of them.
