The U.S. Census Bureau invites the public to share input and ideas for an improved 2030 Census. The invitation comes in the form of a Federal Register Notice published this week. The notice marks the start of a 90-day response window.
The Census Bureau is in the early stages of planning for the next census – a process that includes years of research and testing to prepare for the complex task of counting every person living in the United States each decade. By mid-decade, in 2024, the Census Bureau expects to decide the initial operational design for the 2030 Census – the “big picture” plan for the census. That milestone is followed by refining procedures and putting technology and other infrastructure in place for the national count in 2030.
As part of the planning efforts, the public is invited to share feedback on how the Census Bureau can improve respondents’ experience during the 2030 Census. With this input, the Census Bureau aims to better reach and count historically undercounted people, overcome challenges and encourage everyone to respond to the 2030 Census.
The public can submit comments in two ways:
Comments must be received by Nov. 15. Comments should be specific, detailed, clear and identify which topic(s) each comment addresses.
