As the co-chair of the House Census Caucus and author of the Census IDEA Act, Congresswoman Maloney is leading the charge to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census. The importance of accurate data cannot be minimized. Decennial census data is used to ensure fair representation and the fair distribution of federal funds.
Here are some of the actions Congresswoman Maloney has taken to protect the 2020 Census:
- Helped secure an additional $1 billion for Census outreach.
- Authored the 2020 Census IDEA Act (HR 732) to block citizenship question.
- Led Amicus Brief signed by over 120 members of Congress in support of the New York Attorney General’s lawsuit to block the citizenship question.
- Co-founded House Census Caucus to protect the 2020 Census from partisan attacks.
If you or someone know is interested in working on the 2020 Census, recruiting has already begun. Go to 2020Census.gov/jobs for information.
Congresswoman Maloney previously served as the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Federalism and the Census and fought to ensure that the 2000 and 2010 Census would be fair and accurate.

More on Census
Thank you Mr. Chairman.
Census Day may be eighteen days away, but the Census has begun. Almost 100 million questionnaires are in the mail and 22 million more are being delivered by hand in rural areas. I received mine yesterday and I urge all Americans to fill out their questionnaire and mail it back.
Thank you Mr. Chairman, and welcome again Dr. Prewitt. I would like to thank you Dr. Prewitt for taking time out of what must be an incredibly busy schedule to appear before us today. As the Census Bureau begins the most intensive operations of the 2000 Census, Congress and the American public need to stay informed on the progress of the largest peace-time mobilization in American history. I'm happy to say that from reading your testimony Dr. Prewitt, it appears that the 2000 Census operations are on schedule and as of today there are no major problems.
Mr. Chairman, Mrs. Maloney, and Members of the Subcommittee: I welcome this opportunity to report on the status of Census 2000. When I last testified, we were 53 days from Census Day, April 1. Now we are 24 days away and the clock is racing. Much has happened in the last month. The next few weeks will be the most demanding phase of Census 2000 thus far.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Yesterday, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), the Ranking Democrat on the House Census Subcommittee, asked the Postmaster General to investigate, what seems to be a clear violation of federal law, mailings that are intended to resemble government documents. The letters were part of a fund-raising solicitation sent by the Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF), the leading critic of the Census Bureau, to over a quarter-million households. The letters were sent in envelopes designed to look like official Census Bureau mailings and were timed to overlap with the Census Bureau's mailing out of the official census forms to every home in the country.
