Census 2020

The census has been going on under difficult conditions, and pretty quick the results will be announced.
Let the gerrymandering begin...

Re: Census 2020

Is that from the final and confirmed census count?

That's what I thought.  Any idea what those numbers are based in?  Projections?  Leaks in Washington from whistle blowers who are doing the census?

Prolly Facebook data which is likely better than a census.

Re: Census 2020

The census does the 10 year tally and also a 5 year sampling. I have the honor/horror of being chosen for grilling every five years. Also the government and the FED as well as some private think tanks keep track of shifting demographics. Probably General Motors and General Mills could come up with reasonably accurate information for the chart. I noticed when was gathering the charts for the  How Did We Get Here thread some had footnotes on frequency of data gathering and may of them have picked up in the last five years.

Re: Census 2020

How is this done in places by the United Kingdom or Gremany?  Do they have a census? Or do sampling?  I understand redistricting in UK is done every five years.  Based upon what?
