Obama’s Census Bureau Asked About Citizenship in Yearly Survey

Democrats have thrown a fit this week about the recent Trump administration decision to include questions about citizenship status on the 2020 Census.

For example former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder threatened to sue the federal government over the decision.

But the annual American Community Survey (ACS), a lesser-known tabulation conducted by the Census Bureau, asked recipients about their citizenship status every year during the Obama administration.

For each person in the household, the survey asks, “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” The form offers five options for participants.

The Obama administration asked ACS recipients for all relevant Census information, including citizenship status in every year of its incumbency.

2009 ACS

2010 ACS

2011 ACS

2012 ACS

2013 ACS

2014 ACS

2015 ACS

2016 ACS

According to the Census Bureau, 3.5 million households receive the survey every year, meaning the Obama Census Bureau would have contacted 28 million households over its tenure.

Critics of Trump’s move are worried that the Census move may “[curtail] participation and possibly [undercount] people living in the United States, particularly immigrants and minority groups,” The New York Times reported.
