The Census Bureau has the difficult task of achieving a complete, accurate and fair count of the US population while protecting the health of census workers and the public. An accurate count is vital to the election process and to states and local governments that receive funding based on the census data. What are communities doing to encourage residents to comply with the census process? The coronavirus hits minority communities especially hard. That, along with the fear generated by immigration fears make the process even more challenging to avoid serious undercounting.
