What is a Census Information Center?

Started in 1988, the Census Information Center (CIC) program is a cooperative venture between the U.S. Census Bureau, national community-based organizations, and colleges and universities that function as auxiliary data distribution centers reaching underserved populations.

The mission of the CIC program is to provide efficient access to Census Bureau data products through this wide network of organizations. Those organizations effectively process and disseminate Census Bureau data to underserved population groups in easily understandable formats.

As an official repository of Census Bureau data, UnidosUS receives a variety of data products, information and services directly from the bureau. UnidosUS staff also receive training in understanding and interpreting all of the Census Bureau's data products.

What does the UnidosUS CIC offer?

  • Publication of demographic briefs and reports on Latinos and Hispanics at the national, state, city, and neighborhood levels.
  • Orientation and training on Census Bureau data products and their use for community leaders and service providers.
