“Census Bureau Finds Latinos, Asians Sensitive to Now-Blocked Citizenship Question”

Hansi also covers the Census Bureau’s final report on its 2019 test of placing a citizenship question on the decennial enumeration.  (That test, of course, was conducted after Secretary Ross had already decided to include the question.)

The final report finds little impact overall, but a significant impact on some sizable populations.  I also wonder whether the white-hot publicity over the citizenship question in 2019 artificially depressed the “control” group of individuals asked to respond to the test questionnaire without the additional question … and the degree of any continuing reluctance to respond to the Census even with the citizenship question now legally barred.
