Census Bureau Releases Diversity Data, But Concerns About An Undercount Remain

U.S. Census Bureau
/

The U.S. Census Bureau released more data from the 2020 U.S. Census today, including diversity numbers. There were large increases to many non-white races and ethnicities, which they attribute to simply asking better questions. However, some are still concerned that a proposed citizenship question and pandemic-related challenges still led to an undercount of certain populations.
