Census to replace “approaching obsolescence” American FactFinder

The Census Bureau is soliciting proposals for a new Data Access and Dissemination System (DADS) in preparation for the 2010 Decennial Census to replace the existing systems. “The government recognizes that DADS systems are approaching obsolescence,” Census said in its solicitation. (Census Acquisition Information. DATA ACCESS AND DISSEMINATION SYSTEM (DADS II))

“DADS is made up of the American FactFinder system for dissemination of data, the Data Product Production System for Census 2000 product tabulations and the American FactFinder Advanced Query system for Census 2000. IBM Corp. is the incumbent, having provided DADS since 1997.” (Census to modernize data distribution systems, by Mary Mosquera, GCN, 01/09/07)
