The Center for Population Studies (CPS) educates, conducts research, and engages in public outreach concerning population issues. Essential to this mission is CPS’s Society and Health Research Initiatives.
Since the onset of the pandemic, CPS researchers have been engaged in a variety of activities to create materials that inform stakeholders and community members about research and data related to the novel coronavirus.
The U.S. Census Bureau provides an interactive data hub featuring demographic and economic resources related to COVID-19 as well as a COVID-19 resource page designed to help federal agencies, businesses, and communities make decisions related to the pandemic.
CPS intensified community engagement and outreach events about the U.S. Census in preparation for the 2020 Census. See the 2020 Census Outreach page on the State Data Center of Mississippi for details.
