Is Texas going to be prepared for the 2020 census?


With the 2020 census right around the corner, it is necessary to analyze the growth in the cities as the demographics are constantly changing.

Texas is expected to have gained around 4.5 million residents between 2010 and 2020, mainly due to the native-born Latino population along with the on-going migration from neighboring states.

Some are worried that the Texas growth will only guarantee more Congress representation and more federal dollars for public programs, if the state’s population is accurately counted during the 2020 U.S. Census.

State chairman, James Dickey (TX-R) said he doesn’t believe Texas should play an active role in managing census outcomes because it is because it is the federal government’s constitutional responsibility to do so.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate to expend taxpayer resources in a long-shot effort to influence the final census count in some significant way,” said Dickey.
