The U.S. Census Bureau recently published a Federal Register Notice inviting the public to provide suggestions for a better operational design of the 2030 Census. The public can send their input and ideas until November 15 through email or by leaving comments directly on the Federal Register Notice page which is accessible from the 2030 Census webpage.

The City of Fort Worth reported:

The Census Bureau is in the early stages of planning for the next census – a process that includes years of research and testing to prepare for the complex task of counting every person living in the United States each decade. By mid-decade, in 2024, the Census Bureau expects to decide the initial operational design for the 2030 Census – the “big picture” plan for the census. That milestone is followed by refining procedures and putting technology and other infrastructure in place for the national count in 2030.

As part of the planning efforts, the public is invited to share feedback on how the Census Bureau can improve respondents’ experience during the 2030 Census. With this input, the Census Bureau aims to better reach and count historically undercounted people, overcome challenges and encourage everyone to respond to the 2030 Census.
