My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

Census Bureau Press Conference in 2 hrs…

Though the Census Bureau is holding a press conference today, they never bothered to send an e-mail out about it. It’s a great way to dodge tough questions by not having reporters at a press conference…

What:
As the 2010 Census reaches another milestone, U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert M. Groves will brief the media on the status of operations. Groves will announce America’s progress as the door-to-door follow-up phase concludes and discuss the next steps in field operations. The briefing will include a media question-and-answer session.

When:
Wednesday, July 7, 1 p.m. (EDT)

Who:
Robert M. Groves, director, U.S. Census Bureau

Where:
National Press Club, 13th floor
Holeman Lounge
529 14th St. NW

Members of the media may also participate by telephone. (Please dial-in early to allow time for the operator to place you in the call.)

Dial-in number: 888-603-8938
Passcode: 2010 CENSUS

    I recieved the update yesterday via the RSS feed, looks like same type as the June brief. Maybe they just don’t like you.

  2. anonymous Says:

    I got the same update. Check your reader, SRM.

  3. Cincy Says:

    The event # was 70050.

    On June 28, Groves blogged that VDC was 15 million cases. Today, he said VDC was 8 million cases. Does no one else think this calls for an explanation?

  4. James Says:

    Maybe the notification of the press conference only went to serious news outlets. As far as the reduction of cases in VDC, yet it would be nice to know why the big decrease. This seems to have happened across the board at most LCOs. So far haven’t seen any adds come across yet.

    RE: reduction in VDC caseload – Our LCO went from 25,000 cases down to 15,100. No further explanation or info is known.
