How the Census Bureau Won’t Tell Us About the Numbers in Its Non-Census Population Information

I’ve written before about the Census bureau’s decision to withhold population information from its Non-citizen Population Information (NCPI) and Census Source Data (CSD) reports, citing its concern that these reports could mislead the public.

A cursory look at NCPI’s data, for instance, reveals that it’s missing the entire U.S. population and a staggering number of people in the United Kingdom.

This omission is so serious that it prompted the head of the Census agency, Richard Hickey, to issue a statement saying that the bureau was “not doing this intentionally” and was “in the process of making changes.”
