Texts Show That Census Supervisor In Alabama Told Counters To Use Fake Answers

The texts from an Alabama census supervisor had an urgent tone. “THIS JUST IN …,” one of them began. It then laid out how census takers should fake data to mark households as having only one resident even if they had no idea how many people actually lived there. The goal of the texts from October, obtained by The Associated Press, was to check off as many households as possible on the list of homes census takers were supposed to visit because residents never had filled out census questionnaires....

Seriously late California mortgages jump 6-fold

Skipped mortgage payments across California are jumping to levels not seen since the mortgage mess surrounding the Great Recession. Should we be very worried about a pandemic-burdened economy’s hit to bill-paying abilities? Let’s start with a few numbers from mortgage tracker CoreLogic and its measure of “seriously delinquent” home loans in August — those with 90 days or more of late payments. Statewide, 3.8% of home loans were in deep trouble compared with 0.6% a year earlier. Yes, that’s a six...

653,551 folks left California in 2019. Where did they go?

Last year 653,551 Californians relocated to other states with Texas drawing the most transplants while Nevada had the largest share of its population being 2019 newcomers from the Golden State. Annual state-to-state migration stats from the U.S. Census Bureau reveal that Californians, when they move, like to stay in the West. And while no state lost more residents to other states, California’s 2019 departures equaled only 1.7% of its largest-in-the-nation population. Only two states had smaller ...

Pandemic makes building homes, not apartments, California’s hot property

Building homes, not apartments, is housing’s sweet spot in this pandemic era. Homebuilders across California filed 17,042 permits this summer for single-family homes — the second-busiest quarter since 2007, according to U.S. Census Bureau stats compiled by the St. Louis Fed. My trusty spreadsheet says that pace is a 42% surge from the spring’s pandemic-induced chill and up 18% from a year ago. It’s all part of a widespread and curious coronavirus impact on housing. Amid the pandemic, house seeke...

Advisory group worried about rural census, crunched timeline

Members of an advisory committee to the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday that they're concerned rural areas will be undercounted in the 2020 census and the statistical agency has shortened its timeline for crunching the numbers used for allocating federal funds and congressional seats by state. Given that they have low internet access, residents of rural areas are particularly at risk of being undercounted because field operations for the 2020 census ended two weeks earlier than planned, member...

Census takers fall short of target goal in US count

By Mike Schneider | Associated Press From tribal lands in Arizona and New Mexico to storm-battered Louisiana, census workers who go door to door were unable to reach all the households they needed for a complete tally of the U.S. population, a count that ended abruptly last week after a Supreme Court ruling. Community activists, statisticians and civil rights groups say racial and ethnic minorities are historically undercounted, and shortcomings in the 2020 census could set the course of life in...

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, Oct. 13, halted the once-a-decade head count of every U.S. resident from continuing through the end of October, dealing a blow to local organizations pushing to finish their work.

Supreme Court Halts Census Count In Most Recent Twist Of 2020 Count

(AP/CBS13) — On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration can end census field operations early, batting aside a lawsuit that warned the truncated schedule will lead to minorities being undercounted in the crucial once-a-decade headcount. The decision was not a total loss for the plaintiffs who managed to get two extra weeks of counting people as the case challenging the U.S. Census Bureau’s decision to end the census in September made its way through the courts. The Supreme...

The head of the U.S. Census Bureau says in a court declaration that the agency is complying with a judge's order for the 2020 census to continue through the end of October, even as the judge keeps fielding complaints from census takers about corners being cut in order to close cases and workers being laid off for no reason. Agency contracts have been extended allowing people to self-respond to the questionnaire online, by mail or by phone through this month, and census takers are still knocking...

California merchants see deeper dip, slower rebound than U.S. peers

A new measure of state retail spending shows California merchants suffered from a below-average rebound in June following a deep pandemic-related plunge in shopping. The U.S. Census Bureau has released its first “experimental” monthly measure of retail spending, an attempt to estimate shopping habits at a local level. It’s good timing as we thirst for insight into how the pandemic and efforts to slow its spread have impacted the economy. By this math, California stores took in 2.6% more sales in...

U.S. commerce chief sets October 5 target date to end census operations

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has set Oct. 5 as a target date to end data collection operations for the 2020 U.S. census, the U.S. Census Bureau said on Monday, weeks before the scheduled completion date of Oct. 31. President Donald Trump's administration, which said in August that it planned to shorten the time line by a month, was sued by municipalities and civil rights groups, which argued the "rushed" schedule would lead to inaccurate census results and "a massive undercount of the co...

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross says the 2020 census will end Oct. 5, despite a federal judge’s ruling last week allowing the head count of every U.S. resident to continue through the end of October, according to a tweet posted on the Census Bureau’s website Monday.

Census takers head to homeless shelters, outdoor camps

State revenue loss due to COVID-19 not as bad as feared

Most states' final quarter of fiscal year 2020 took a revenue hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But their annual tax collections, which were probably mostly electronic instead of as official state quarters, wasn't as bad as many had feared. (Photo — and coin collection — by Kay Bell) Most states wrapped up their 2020 fiscal year (FY) on June 30. As you might expect, those annual financial numbers were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. What is surprising, however, is that states' revenue ...
