The statistics will be posted to the Census Bureau’s embargo site at 10 a.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, March 20, for public release at 12:01 a.m. (EDT) on Thursday, March 22. Wire and distribution services are prohibited from distributing embargoed news stories and data files to subscribers before the public release date and time.
