The Spelman College Census Information Center
The Census Information Center initiative is a cooperative program between the U.S. Bureau of the Census and 52 national, regional and local non-profit organizations, and represents the interests of underserved communities. The centers serve as repositories of census data and reports, making census information and data available to the public and the communities they serve. Spelman College has been part of the program since 2000.
CICs use census data in areas such as program planning, needs assessments, defining service areas, developing new business enterprises, and conducting demographic and social research.
The Spelman College Census Information Center was established in 2000 by economics professor Dr. Romie Tribble, and is now directed by Dr. Bruce Wade, associate professor and former chair of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology
