  • Groves' view of Census 2020
    Jeremiah
    I read the article with a large dollop of irony. The 2010 census was in many ways a fiasco, as documented by GAO. Under Mr. Groves, the Bureau sought to automate the process by assigning hand-held recording devices to enumerators, but due to poor Census contractual oversight, again per GAO, the devices never performed as required, and recourse had to be had to use of the old manual data collection paradigm. Census wound up losing $3 billion on that failed initiative, according to GAO. Mr. Groves' boast about coming in under budget doesn't acknowledge that this "success" was only due to the vastly expanded supplemental budget that Congress had to approve so that the 2010 census could conduct it using the old - and highly expensive in terms of necessary manpower - paper and pencil enumerator data recording process. It seems that all recollection of this bureaucratic debacle has gone down an Orwellain "memory hole," or at least that's apparently what Mr. Groves hopes. We in the meantime can only hope that the renewed effort to automate the 2020 census data collection process isn't a repeat of its disastrous 2010 predecessor.
