THE U.S. CENSUS: From Enumeration to Intrusion

(St. Paul/Minneapolis) - Today, as Americans begin to receive their U.S. Census forms, the Citizens' Council on Health Care (CCHC) releases a new report: The "The U.S. CENSUS: From Enumeration to Intrusion."

"The U.S. Census has become an intrusive data collection tool for the federal government. The change from constitutional enumeration to federal intrusion has turned led to higher costs, public resistance, and lower compliance. The Census Bureau's plans to count everyone, not just citizens, may also deny American citizens their constitutional right to equal representation," says Twila Brase, president of CCHC.

Sections of the 9-page report, which also includes information on the American Community Survey and the Economic Survey, have the following titles:

  • Purpose of the U.S. Census
  • From Enumeration to Intrusion
  • Serious Concerns
  • Privacy and Power
  • Authorized Access
  • CBO "Census Agents"
  • Future Access by HHS
  • Imperfect Data
  • Tainted History
  • Penalties for Opting Out
  • Rising Costs
  • A Better Way
  • Unconstitutional Count
  • Conclusion
