34 Groups Support Census Bureau Director Nomination

Thirty-four national and state organizations, in academia, research and activism, wrote to the leadership of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on July 14, 2021 to recommend Robert Santos in his nomination to lead the U.S. Census Bureau.

“As a long-time user of Census data and respected member of the Census stakeholder community, Santos is an outstanding nominee for director. He brings the expertise, stakeholder support, and leadership skills needed to lead the largest federal statistical agency. His expertise—which includes quantitative and qualitative research design, sampling, survey operations, and statistical analysis—matches well with the work of the census, especially in the bureau’s work to reach hard-to-count populations such as communities of color.”

Santos’ nomination hearing in committee will be July 15, 2021 at 10:15 a.m. (ET)
