Can someone send me a “Partnership Specialist” handbook?

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I would really love to know if the Census Bureau tells its “partnership specialists” to proclaim every 2010 Census an event a success, even if it is actually a colossal failure. From reading recent articles about poor turnouts at Census Bureau events that are called “successes” by staff members, this seems like a probably strategy. I hope that there’s a reader out there who can clarify this information for me. Many thanks in advance. – SRM
