Report: Census Bureau at risk of not being ready for count

By  | 

The start of the 2020 census is just a month away for most U.S. residents. A new report says the U.S. Census Bureau has succeeded so fair in early tasks but is at risk of not being ready for future operations.

The report released Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office says the bureau is behind in recruiting workers and establishing partnerships with civic groups.

The report also says the bureau is at risk of missing some informational technology goals. Census Bureau director Steven Dillingham told lawmakers that the once-a-decade head count is in a position to succeed.
