2020 Census Special

On the special Oct. 9 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and a panel of guests discuss the 2020 Census, risks in underrepresentation and uncertainty around its deadline. 

Douglas Johnson, president of the National Demographics Corporation and research affiliate for Claremont McKenna College, discusses the risks California and Los Angeles face in terms of representation. 

Ditas Katague, director of the California Census Office, discusses the results of California investing more than any state on this Census and what still needs to be accomplished.
