Jeff Wice on Capitol Pressroom: Why the Citizenship Question Matters

Rockefeller Institute Fellow Jeff Wice joined Susan Arbetter on Capitol Pressroom this week to explain the potential consequences of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census as announced last week by U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Wice, a national expert on census and redistricting, explains how the question could lead to an undercount as immigrants avoid the census — and that could lead to substantial losses in federal funding and representation for New York.

Wice and Rockefeller Institute Fellow and Chief of Staff Heather Trela wrote more about the issue in a previous post.
