Will there be a citizenship question on the Census?

No. The Supreme Court of the United States ruled the Department of Commerce could not add a proposed citizenship question to the 2020 Census based on the reasons the government provided for including it. On July 2, 2019, the Census Bureau formally requested the printing of 2020 Census forms without the citizenship question. This decision ended uncertainty around the citizenship question on the Census. The Secretary of Commerce’s statement stated that the department’s focus “is to conduct a complete and accurate census.” The Department of Justice also confirmed to the judge overseeing the litigation that the question will not be added to the 2020 Census.
