Comment:
Do not require Citizenship status.

Given the objectives and the uses for census data, it’s my opinion that requiring citizenship status will interfere with census accuracy.

Why? A climate of fear has been created affecting non-citizens. This intimidates this population of residents to the point of selectively preventing the collection of census data on them.

Not collecting information on them will diminish the usefulness of the census data.
