As census stakeholders know, the Census Bureau is always preparing for the next decennial headcount. In August, The Census Project published a blog alerting census stakeholders to a request for comments that the Census Bureau issued seeking input on its preparations for the 2030 Census. We want to remind stakeholders that through November 15 the Bureau is accepting comments, which will be used to inform strategies intended to “improve or enhance the way people respond to the 2030 Census on their own.” They are asking the public to comment on the following topics:
- Reaching and motivating everyone
- New data sources
- How we contact respondents
- Respondent support services.
More information about how to submit comments and their intended is use is available at: Federal Register : Soliciting Input or Suggestions on 2030 Census Preliminary Research. Additional resources are available on the 2030 Census home page.
