I’m new to the role of Census Bureau Director and new to blogging.
My idea is to use this blog to let you know my thoughts about how the country is doing as we approach this “national ceremony” that occurs every 10 years – the decennial census.
I can’t promise great humor. I can’t guarantee fascinating or gifted writing.
I will tell it like it is, as I see it. Hopefully, you’ll find it interesting, as together we all approach April 1, 2010, where each of us have the right and responsibility to return a census questionnaire.
The census is a massive undertaking, with over 1 million employees working to gather information from you and me, to repaint the portrait of America. I’ll try to give you a sense of what that effort looks like from the inside.
Feel free to share my posts with your friends; feel free to comment. It will be more fun for all if we use this blog to have our voices heard.
Stay tuned. I’ll probably have a new post twice a week or so, more when a lot of things are happening.
