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.

The big news from today’s press conference…

I don’t have a complete transcript of the press conference available, but of the 565,000 enumerators involved in non-response follow-up (NRFU) operations, the Census Bureau estimates that 1,000 of these people fabricated data. In the coming days will demonstrate why this “1,000″ figure is too low and how additional data that has been compromised will be overlooked.

    Ooh! How exciting! I can’t wait to see the demonstration! Will this demonstration be based on facts of any kind? Or will it be a wild ride of fantastic speculation that discounts any reality that doesn’t support the desired narrative?

    Either way, it should be an interesting read!

    I thought the big news was the budget under run. I wasn’t expecting that based on all the waste SRM has been reporting.

    > 1000 fabricated the EQs. It has shown up in Re-Interview, Quality Control, and NRFU VDC.

    Of course it won’t be based on any facts. I might also point out that it has been a few days and he has shown nothing. Before SRM speaks he should get some info on MARCS cases, RI and how the VDC system and QC works.

    As for the “waste” that SRM has been reporting it has been fabrication (obviously) based on his lack of knowledge of the system and the Census itself.

    I tend to agree, Admin.
