FOX on Tech: Census Surveys Online
The U.S. Census Bureau is hoping on the technology train, turning to digital methods to get information for the American Community Survey, which is used to distribute certain Federal funds.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports:
FOX on Tech.
After four decades of relying on paper, the Census Bureau gives digit a try in earnest: The first large-scale chance for U.S. households to respond to government surveys over the internet.
More than 3.5 million households randomly chosen each year for the American Community Survey will have the option to respond online beginning this week – for now, supplementing the mailed-out Census, not replacing it. A major motivation is saving money, but some civil rights advocates warn against any move to cutback in on-the-ground resources that seek out hard-to-count groups.
