ABSTRACT
The article examines the challenges to the U.S. 2010 census as instructed by the Constitution. The federal government has allotted roughly 14 billion U.S. dollars for the Census Bureau. The initiative is facing antigovernment sentiment and threats of boycotts from frustrated groups on both the right and the left. It is anticipated that the 2010 census will face lower mail-back rates due to the negative political climate. In response, the Bureau of Census decided to reverse the undercounting of groups.
