New Census Information Center (CIC)

For over a decade, the designated Census Information Center (CIC) for Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders in the United States was housed in Papa Ola Lōkahi (POL), see http://www.papaolalokahi.org/native-hawaiian-programs/census-information.html

Events have occurred and priorities have changed. Papa Ola Lōkahi will be turning over the role and responsibilities to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA). The hand off is in progress as each organization adjusts to the new circumstances.

The new Census Information Center is envisioned to be a collaborative and cooperative partnership with several Native Hawaiian Organization and agencies sharing responsibility for different tasks. Papa Ola Lōkahi will continue to have a role in CIC activities. Details for this data alliance is in the process of being defined and sorted out.


The Census Information Center (CIC)

The U.S. Census Bureau's Customer Liaison and Marketing Services Office (CLMSO) administers the Census Information Center (CIC) Program. CLMSO is a division within the Census Bureau's Communication Directorate.

The CIC program was established in 1988, when the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Urban League entered into a joint agreement to create a pilot project to make Census data and information available to minority communities.

In 2000, the CIC network became an official Census Bureau program. Both the Census Bureau and each of the organizations in the CIC network signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The MOA is a legal document approved by the Department of Commerce that explains the cooperative agreement between the organizations and the U.S. Census Bureau. In addition, it outlines the responsibilities of the both the CIC and the Census Bureau.

Currently, the network consists of over 50 centers, a mix of national and community-based organizations. The network is comprised of colleges and universities, research groups, minority chambers of commerce, civil rights organizations serving children, the aging, rural populations, and tribal governments.

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