How to Spot Census Trolls
The Census has not been cancelled as some might have heard, likely brought on by circumstances resulting from the Coronavirus. The Coronavirus caused a temporary suspension of in-person operations, but modifications have been made, including the push-back of the timeline. The Census Bureau is currently waiting approval that would allow for the completion of the Census count by April 2021.
Not all incorrect information about the Census is a result of a misunderstanding like the Coronavirus. Some erroneous information is intentional. To learn more about misinformation and disinformation about the Census and how to be on the lookout, download How to Spot Census Trolls here.
