Yesterday’s Census Hearing: Lingering Effects of the Citizenship Question

Roll Call:

Although the Trump administration dropped a citizenship question from this year’s census, minority groups told the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Thursday that the question’s specter has haunted preparations for a national count that could miss millions of residents.

More from NBC:

There also are concerns of undercounts in rural areas of the country since the census is allowing responses online this year and many rural areas have no access to the internet.

“Hard-to-count communities are in every state and district, from large urban areas to rural and remote communities, including American Indian tribal lands and reservations,” said Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
