Past Subcommittee This subcommittee's activities have ended.

The Subcommittee on Cultural and Demographic Data (SCDD) is composed of members from Federal agencies that collect or finance the collection of cultural and demographic geospatially referenced data as part of their mission or that have direct application of these data through legislated mandate.

The SCDD's purpose is to promote the collection, use, sharing, and dissemination of cultural and demographic geospatially referenced data pertinent to the needs of the Nation. These data include the characteristics of the people, the nature of the dwellings in which they live, the economic activities they pursue, the facilities they use to support their health and recreational needs, the environmental consequences of their presence, and the boundaries, names and numeric codes of geographic entities used to report the information collected.
