The U.S. Census Bureau seeks comments on all aspects of the Business Research and Development Survey for the 2018-2022 releases. Collected in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), the survey provides comprehensive data on Research and Development (R&D) costs and detailed expenses by type and industry. The U.S. Census Bureau also announced that it would start collecting data about R&D on artificial intelligence and geographic detail of companies' R&D workforce in 2018.  For those interested in providing feedback, comments are due by October 23.

The U.S. Census Bureau also is hosting a webinar on Sept. 6 in advance of the release of 2017 American Community Survey statistics. The webinar will show participants how to access new data and online resources from the 2017 edition. Attendees also will learn about changes related to this release and tips for comparing geographies and statistics over time.
