2020 census

COVID-19 Affecting Census Efforts

Mar 31, 2020

April 1 is the official launch for the 2020 U.S. Census. One area county is getting the word out despite the pandemic.


Este es nuestro último episodio de la tempoarada, así que decidimos hablar acerca de la importancia del voto. Tu voto cuenta. Este año que viene mas personas de color van a ser elegibles para el voto que en años pasados. According to the Pew Research Center, the 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate.

In this episodio, our co producer Mareea Thomas and I thought we would dive right into the census. Many millennials haven’t filled the census either so for this episodio we’ll fill out the 2020 census sample questionnaire we found on census.gov. 

The census can be confusing for some, pero cuando le añades misinformation, it can get a lot trickier. El censo has made an effort to fight against misinformation on social media. And it got plenty of attention.

This season we’re staying on top of two major topics happening this and the next year, the census and the 2020 elections. 

En nuestro primer episodio, we talked about why the census was important, why some immigrantes didn’t want to respond to the citizenship question on it, about the millions of dollars that are allocated every year based on the census count y como esta estadistica puede afectar las elecciones el año que viene.

This season we’re staying on top of two major topics happening this and the next year ; the census and the 2020 elections. 

Por si no lo sabias, este año the debate of the citizenship question being on the census form filled our news feeds. Escuchamos que era algo bueno por que it would have given us an accurate count of Hispanos and Latinos that needed help with things like legal aid or language assistance. Others thought this could put a target on the undocumented population and made them nervous.
