Nearly 20 percent of people say they are undecided about participating in this year’s census, the government’s once-a-decade attempt to paint a new portrait of the country.
According to a new poll released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center, 10 percent of people said they might or might not participate, 4 percent probably will not, 2 percent definitely will not, and another 2 percent do not yet know if they will take part.
The census kicks off later this year when the 10-question form arrives in mailboxes nationwide in March, followed by National Census Day on April 1.
When Pew interviewed over 1,500 adults by phone from Jan. 6-10, they found that 58 percent of Americans will definitely participate in the survey, while another 23 percent probably will.
