With the decennial headcount just about to start, Congress finally delivered full funding to the Census Bureau for Fiscal Year 2020.
Morning Consult today made five predictions for 2020. One of them was for a difficult 2020 Census.
The Insights Association recently joined with over 200 other organizations and companies in urging Congress to “provide full-year funding for the 2020 Census as soon as possible.” With the latest Continuing Resolution funding the federal government, including the Census Bureau, expising on December 20, 2019, IA is worried about the Bureau getting the funding certainty necessary to fully roll out and complete the decennial headcount, especially since "the constitutionally mandated 2020 Census has already started."

A new research study about the 2020 Census found 58 percent of respondents will “definitely” participate, but that more than 4 in 10 remain unsure – a comparable ratio from the 2010 and 2000 counts
The latest Continuing Resolution funding the federal government contains increased funding for the 2020 Census, improving the odds of decennial preparations getting completed and setting the stage for the completion of full-year funding before the end of the year.
Seventy-four American business leaders urged Congressional appropriators to "prioritize funding" for the 2020 Census, a "fundamental civic responsibility."
Sen. Jack Reed recently wrote to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about his “deep concern over the inclusion of a citizenship question on questionnaires for the Census Bureau's 2019 Census Test.” Per media reports, he said, “the Census Bureau has not removed these questionnaires from circulation even though there will be no citizenship question on the 2020 Decennial Census.”
On July 2, 2019, according to a Department of Justice official, the Department of Commerce officially dropped their plans to add a citizenship question to the decennial headcount and any suggestion of delaying the 2020 Census, in response to their defeat at the Supreme Court last week.
