The Essential Role of Race and Ethnicity Statistics in the Quest for Civil Rights

Check page 9 for how the census is used for Civil Rights. 

Mackenzie Mcneal :)'s curator insight, April 6, 2015 10:12 AM

This shows the distribution of many different races throughout the US. This is what the census for 2020 to look like for our country. This picture shows how scientists conclude that over the next few years, many races will be spread throughout the the US. This will give us more of a variety of not only races but languages and even cultures. This will help by adding character to our country.

The 2020 Census wants to help capture a multi-ethnic America.The census has improved its responses and its maintains accuracy. 

During the 2010 census, the Census Bureau conducted the Race and Hispanic Origin Alternative Questionnaire Experiment (AQE), the largest and earliest effort it had ever undertaken to examine how people identify their race and ethnicity. -CB

I believe censuses are an accurate way of capturing data and are extremely helpful in assisting researchers in studying the multiple ethnicities and races in America and making the studies more accurate. This relates to what we're learning because it adds to the information we already have about multi-ethnic areas. This tells us exactly how censuses are taken and used, which goes along with what we already know about ethnicities and races in America and other such countries.
