The two-word goal of “count everyone” is simply stated, but difficult. In this workshop we will give a broad overview of the many moving parts connected to the US decennial operation. Although fair apportionment is the primary motivator for a complete enumeration, we highlight how the 2020 decennial also serves as an important backbone for future products such as sample surveys used in demographic research. Along the discussion, we will point out difficulties along with the demographic and statistical methods used to address them. Participants are encouraged to discuss their experiences, questions and concerns.
