- The website’s main navigation (running horizontally across the top of the page) is now simplified to the following categories: Topics, Data & Maps, Surveys & Programs, and Resource Library.
- The website is also introducing audience-based navigation with options for Partners, Researchers, Educators, and Survey Respondents the ability to jump into relevant content across census.gov.
The refreshed census.gov website debuted September 17. The Census Bureau plans to continue to improve the site based on additional testing and feedback from web visitors and stakeholders. For more information about the changes, please watch this video.
