April 1, 2020 was the launch of Census 2020. IRUSA’S Naeem Muhammad sits with Census 2020 experts Shagufta Ahmed and Sierra Latham to learn about the importance of this decade count.
“I’m the child of immigrants, and I grew up in a household where there was a little bit of hesitation about engaging. But I remember when the Census occurred.

This is where we get counted.’” said Shagufta Ahmed, US Census Bureau.
