On August 17, the Census Bureau issued a Federal Register notice seeking comments on the 2030 Census. Specifically, the Bureau is seeking input regarding five major topics:
- Reaching and Motivating Everyone to Respond to the Census
- New Data Sources
- How We Contact Respondents
- Respondent Support
Comments are due November 15.
In a blog published, September 7, Director Robert Santos said: “I am so excited to be part of the decade-long journey working toward the 2030 Census. I can’t thank you enough for coming along and helping us write the story of the 2030 Census – from the design to its future execution. This is deeply important work. It’s a labor of love, and I’m proud that we are formally engaging the public this early in the process. I appreciate your support and enthusiasm and look forward to receiving your ideas.”
