The Role of Intermediaries in the Interpretation and Dissemination of Data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census
Abstract:This paper describes the nature and function of the principal secondary distributors of data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Section 1 describes the Federal Depository Library Program; Section 2 describes the State Data Center Program; and Section 3 describes the private sector vendors. Each section of the paper has a general description of the intermediary and the manner in which it interprets and disseminates data to ultimate data users. Each of these intermediaries forms a critical link between the Census Bureau and users of Census Bureau data. Many potential users of Census Bureau data would not have access to the data without the services of the intermediaries.
Keywords:Data user; network; services; Federal Depository Libraries; State Data Centers; private sector vendors.
