The United States Census Bureau put out a 165-page report today called “2020 Census Barriers, Attitudes, and Motivators Study (CBAMS) Focus Group Final Report.” Basically, it’s about people who don’t want to fill out their census forms. The main reasons found were privacy concerns, apathy, fear of repercussions, and lack of time. The report is full of the focus groups they studied, including African American, Native American, Hispanic, Chinese, middle-eastern, rural, and on and on. However, it appears that the one group not included is the “two or more races” group—the biracial and multiracial people. It would appear that either the multiracial community is just fine with filling out their census forms or they just don’t exist to the federal government. You decide.
