WASHINGTON, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Census Bureau has named Ditas Katague as chair of its National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations, effective Aug. 1, 2015. She has been a member of the committee since its inception in 2012.
The National Advisory Committee advises the Census Bureau on a wide range of variables that affect the cost, accuracy and implementation of the Census Bureau's programs and surveys, including the once-a-decade census. The committee is comprised of up to 32 members from multiple disciplines.
The National Advisory Committee members, who serve at the discretion of the Census Bureau director, are chosen to serve based on expertise and knowledge of the cultural patterns, issues and/or statistical needs of hard-to-count populations.
