Too Long; Didn't Read

The U.S. Constitution mandates that every 10 years the Census Bureau counts every person living in the United States. The census has continuously adopted new technological tools to make the process easier, cheaper, and more accurate. This year's census is the first time the bureau has widely promoted the online option. The agency is contending with privacy concerns surrounding its digital push, worries about online fraud, and a climate of fear that many worry will discourage people in immigrant communities from responding. The 2020 census officially kicked off March 12, just a few days before the first pandemic stay-at-home orders went into place.
