Making Cataño Count
MetadataShow full item record
The School of City and Regional Planning at Georgia Tech hosted its second iteration of its Planning Studio master’s requirement in Puerto Rico in Spring of 2020. This year’s studio focused on the United States Decennial Census efforts for 2020. Puerto Rico, as an underrepresented territory within the United States, was a driving motivator for this project. The studio was assigned to Cataño, a small municipality just across the bay from the capital, San Juan. Cataño faces disproportionate levels of hard-to-count and underrepresented populations within the greater metropolitan area. Both the Cataño government and Puerto Rican Planning Board were assigned as the studio’s clients.
