Counting on innovation for census 2020
For the Census Bureau, the plan’s the thing, and it likely won’t change much.
“We’re bringing the decennial census into the 21st century,” Lisa Blumerman, associate director for Decennial Census Programs, told FCW in a Jan. 15 conversation. “This census is going to be like no other census.”
At the start of a critical year, Blumerman expressed confidence in the bureau’s ambitious, technology-laden plan for the 2020 enumeration, calling it a firm foundation for controlled innovation.
