As someone who is familiar with Census records over the past hundred plus years as part of genealogy research I find the current census fact gathering to be disappointing. In the past there was a rich gathering of information about people living in our nation. And this information is not released to the public until years later for privacy. As an example the 1950 Census has not been released yet. If the government will be using it to disperse our tax money then why aren't they more accountable about how and who our money to given to? Just a question...
