The Difficulty Taking A Census In A Pandemic


The federal census is a massive undertaking in the best of circumstances.  And this year does not provide the best of circumstances. 

This or any census tries to get a head count of every single person in the country centered around the first of April, but this April 1st found a huge chunk of the population staying home, avoiding the spread of Covid-19. 

California Complete Count and Communities for a New California are among the partners working to get Californians counted despite the difficulty.  Ditas Katague, CCC director, visits with Pablo Rodriguez from CNC.
