Abstract

This report presents the opinions of Michigan’s local government leaders regarding the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census, including their confidence in the potential accuracy of the count both locally and at the state level, assessments of groups within their jurisdiction that may be difficult to count, and any local actions currently being taken to boost census participation among residents. These findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Spring 2019 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), with a comparison to the Spring 2010 wave of the MPPS.
