The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was enacted in 1966 to provide people a means to access federal agency records, with the exception of those excluded from consideration under the FOIA or protected by one of nine FOIA exemptions.
Gerald W. Gates, Chief of the Policy Office, is the FOIA Officer for the Census Bureau.
