For the first time, the public had the opportunity to formally give input on planning and designing the next census through a Federal Register Notice. The comment period was open from August 17, 2022 through November 15, 2022.
We sought public feedback on specific topics with the goal of helping ensure everyone is counted, especially historically undercounted populations. These topics included: reaching and motivating everyone to respond to the census, technology, new data sources, how we contact the public, and how we provide support to the public.
This video provides an update about the input we received through the Federal Register Notice and more information about the next steps the Census Bureau will take to share these comments with the public and incorporate them into 2030 Census planning. It also presents a brief overview of the 2030 Census planning process.
Note: This video updates the video released in November 2022, “2030 Census Research: Your Ideas are Important to Us.”
