Ohio 2018 Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) Workshop

The U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) conducts the Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) annually to collect legal boundary information, government status, and names for American Indian areas, states, counties, minor civil divisions (MCD), and incorporated places. The Census Bureau uses the boundary information collected in the BAS to tabulate population data for the decennial and economic censuses as well as annual estimates and surveys such as the American Community Survey and the Population Estimates Program.

The Census Bureau is conducting BAS workshops in Columbus, OH and Cleveland, OH. The workshops will provide an overview of the 2020 Census Geographic Partnership Programs, the 2018 BAS, and demonstrations for creating a digital and paper response for completing the BAS. You are encouraged to bring your BAS materials to the workshop since there will be an opportunity for you to ask Census staff any questions you may have about your boundary information.
