Census Bureau Statement on Reuters' Story

Press Release Number CB19-RTQ.08

DEC. 4, 2019 — This morning Reuters published a story that raises concerns about the upcoming 2020 Census. Even though this story, as published, contains inaccuracies and outdated information, we are looking into every aspect of it and are taking all concerns seriously. We presently believe that the story relies on several assertions made by people without the knowledge or context to speak authoritatively. 

We are committed to a complete and accurate 2020 Census count, and the online response option is vital to our mission. To that end, we are working with leading experts from the public and private sector to ensure the security and performance of our systems make it easy and safe to respond.
