It starts with the first article of the US Constitution. It has led to significant technology development. It's the US Census and the topic for an exciting E2 Radio episode.
The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
With those words in Article 1, Section 4, Clause 3 of the US Constitution, Congress is directed to count the citizens every 10 years. Equal representation is the driver, but the Census Bureau now collects information used to guide thousands of government decisions and business operations.
In this episode of E2 Radio, we'll talk with Terri Ann Lowenthal, an expert on the census, the technology used, and the uses to which the data is employed. Audience members will gain valuable insights on the technology of the census and the ways in which the technology used for enumerating the US population can be used to inform enterprise decisions and business processes.
