4.1 OGI Report-Questions and concerns were raised regarding the 2020 census and technical difficulties, as well as the quality of processes behind the math that produces the census estimates. Many of us rely on these estimates for projects and accurate data is of high importance.

MSDIS General News

MSDIS was excited to host representatives from Mizzou Extension for a short presentation on the role of the clearinghouse as a part of the MU Extension Summit Campus Tour on Wednesday, 23 October. After explaining the activities and duties of MSDIS, we enjoyed an excellent roundtable discussion with our guests, many of whom suggested other state and campus entities that we might reach out to for future collaboration.
We continue to make minor adjustments to the MSDIS website. This month, we removed the sidebar list of new datasets in favor of a single link to the pdf of the latest MSDIS monthly report. In addition to including a list of recently updated data, the monthly report provides a comprehensive update of clearinghouse activities and statistics. With this change, we hope to provide curious users a much more meaningful look into the state of the clearinghouse. We also moved our list of regional user groups to the Partners page in an ongoing effort to improve the efficiency of the site.
