Census Director Dr. Robert Groves shares insight into the 2010 census and what lies ahead for the 2020 census.
The Census Bureau is ready to apply lessons learned from the 2010 population count to the next one in 2020. It's laying the groundwork to move away from large, troublesome, monolithic technology systems.
The Commerce Department says that as things stand the 2010 Census is now expected to come in on schedule and 22 percent under budget, meaning a savings of $1.6 billion in 2010. Congressional reaction to the news is split along party lines with some lawmakers praising the efforts of the Census Bureau to do an accurate and cost-effective population count - while one lawmaker calls the claims "smoke and mirrors."
With the 2010 census winding down its more public face, officials are double-checking their work as the bureau looks toward the final decennial population count. The Census director peers into his crystal ball as he begins to consider how the 2020 census will be conducted.
