U.S. Bureau of the Census

The U.S. Census Bureau manages large volumes of data that are obtained from the public, processed, and disseminated back to the public. To help support the various survey programs, the Bureau has established an enterprise metadata registry and data governance methodology to drive a successful data strategy across the agency.

Through this evolving data strategy, the enterprise data architect’s office is able to support multiple diverse programs leveraging an enterprise taxonomy and ontology based on the NIEM (National Information Exchange Model) and GSIM (General Statistical Information Model) products. These efforts have benefited the Decennial Census and will continue to help other survey operations handled by the Bureau.
