About the Alaska Census and Geographic Information Network
The Census and Geographic Information Network within the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development has had a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau since 1981. We assist the Bureau with census geographic programs and disseminate data when it is released. In addition to our office in Juneau, we have 10 state and local government agencies creating a network across the state to also provide assistance to the Bureau and answer data requests for their specific areas.

You are welcome to contact our office or any network affiliate for information regarding census programs, the release of data, or if you have any geography questions.
