Because of changes to #2020Census questionnaire, may see some declines in population identifying as a single racial group ("alone"), but see growth in groups "in combination" (more multiracial identification)
Can't do an exact comparison to 2010 for race/ethnicity -- advise caution -- because of changes in questionnaire and how responses were coded. #Census2020

🧵 In Puerto Rico it is being reported that the #Census2020 response rate is high – 89.9 % (9/10/20). Most people think this numbers is the % of households which have completed the census form. Unfortunately, IT IS NOT. That number is actually 33.9% (9/10/20). #Censo2020 Image
I will explain why, esta vez en inglés para el beneficio de nuestros amigos angloparlantes. #Census2020 #Censo2020
89.9% is the share of housing units (households) enumerated (counted). It is referred to as "Enumerated" in the table below or as the total response rate. It is the sum of 2 key pieces of information⬇️⬇️⬇️ #Census2020 #Censo2020

A menos de 3 semanas del finalizar #Censo2020 33.8% de los domicilios en Puerto Rico han completado el formulario del Censo. La Gobernadora @wandavazquezg y @EstadisticasPR no han hecho un pronunciamiento acerca del tema desde julio. Desesperante y desesperanzador. #Census2020 Image
En #Censo2010 54% de los domicilios puertorriqueños completaron el formulario por correo. No existia la opcion de internet o teléfono.
Y por si tienen dudas porque han oído que la tasa de respuestas en Puerto Rico es más alta (86.4%) incluyo este artículo de @NPR que corrobora lo que estoy tratando de explicar El % de domicilios enumerados no es lo mismos que % de formularios completados.… Image

Comienzo 🧵 de #Censo2020 #Census2020

EXPLICANDO EL CENSO - Muchas personas en Puerto Rico están reportando múltiples visitas del Censo y cuestionando si el Censo está registrando sus respuestas. Voy a tratar de contestar algunas de sus preguntas.
1ra Columna (Self-Responded): % de viviendas que han respondido al Censo por correo, internet, o teléfono. Si usted no incluye su código del Censo en su respuesta, el Censo tiene que verificar su dirección antes de incluir su respuesta en la 1ra columna.…
2da Columna (Enumerated in NRFU): % de viviendas visitadas por enumeradores por que no han respondido al Censo. Una vez la unidad de vivienda responde, pasa de la 2da a la 1ra columna.…

I wrote a proposal for @uscensusbureau inspired by @JColeNC song ATM - more info coming today.
We are excited to announce the launch of @BOOMConcepts ' Count It Up campaign in partnership with the @uscensusbureau
@BOOMConcepts Count it Up 2020​ draws small parallels to how the census is a "count it up" moment for individuals and can help steer funding to communities that take part.

“This is a break-the-glass moment for the U.S. #Census. If they stop counting at the end of next month like the Administration plans, it would lock in extra political power and federal funding for whites in the suburbs for a decade. 1/5
It would deprive whites in rural areas, everyone in cities, Native Americans, Blacks, LatinX and renters of that same power and money. 2/5…
The effects go well beyond political manipulation to strike at who counts as an American. Since 1790 the #Census has been a building block to our democracy. 3/5…

"Although excluded from the census, the notorious census citizenship question and the fear it has instilled in people has been an ongoing barrier to overcome in organizing for an accurate and fair census count." #Census2020
“'The citizenship question created so much fear,' said Tervalon-Garrett. 'To be honest, as a Black woman who is a citizen, I was concerned about how I wanted to answer the citizenship question. The whole question and political dynamics seemed really fraught.'" #Census2020
.@TheWayWithAnoa: "The census remains an important tool for providing opportunity and resources to states, nonprofit orgs, & local communities across the country. Misinformation & fear could lead to entire segments of communities in need not completing the census." #Census2020

Thread: Once again, the integrity of the #2020Census is under attack, as the Trump administration seeks to rush the count during a pandemic and suppress the count of immigrants.
Last week the President issued a Memorandum directing the Census Bureau not to count undocumented immigrants in the #2020Census count used to apportion congressional seats:…
Although the constitution is widely understood to require all people, regardless of citizenship or immigration status, to be counted, the order reaffirmed the Administration’s pattern of efforts to suppress the count of immigrants in the Census:…

Thank you @CBCInstitute for the informational Leadership Town Hall. My staff and I found it very helpful in this dire time. Here are some key points we noted:
1. #COVIDー19 Is a member of the Coronavirus family. COVID-19 is an unfamiliar strain which is why this virus is challenging to treat for health care providers.
We need to take #COVIDー19 serious. Many people compare it to the flu and that is not the case. This disease is twice as contagious. If someone is infected, they can spread it to 3 people.

1/3 Today is #CensusDay. There is a direct relationship between a complete and accurate count and the services and equipment we need as a result of #COVID19.

A few key points:

☑️ A complete and accurate #census supports better funding for disaster and healthcare services.

☑️ Federal funding that supports meal distribution comes to Houstonians based on these numbers. More people counted=more food in pantries

☑️ Federal funding based on #census numbers supports hospitals & can determine the amount of equipment that's delivered to our region. Census Community Committee ...Artist puts finishing touch...Mayor speaks in front of ce...

☑️ Complete the #Census2020 in the safety of your own home at or call 844-330-2020. No one will have to knock on your door.

☑️ Everyone needs to be counted.

Does this look like a #Census2020 document? It's's a misleading campaign ad from the Republican National Committee, sent in a mailer to people all over the country. Members of Congress are now trying to stop them from being circulated. #NexstarDC ImageImage
Read the bottom of the page which asks for a campaign contribution of "$25, $50, $100, $250, $500, or $1,000" … to re-elect President Trump and Republicans at all levels of government #NexstarDC Image
Facebook removed paid campaign ads for President Trump & Republicans' re-elections, because they were misleading and looked like links to the U.S. Census Bureau. FB cited a policy to "prevent confusion around the Census". #NexstarDC
