Tom Mesenbourg, Acting Director of the US Census Bureau wrote the following blog post today:
The Times, They Are a -Changin'
Effective August 12, I was appointed Acting Director. I am honored to have been asked to lead this great organization and I look forward to working closely with our stakeholders, oversight organizations, partners, data suppliers, data users, and Census Bureau staff to make the Census Bureau an ever more efficient, effective, and responsive organization. Dr. Nancy Potok is the new Deputy Director and I could not be more pleased.
We at Project RACE doubt that anything will change under the Acting Director. Miscalculations and re-aggregating of multiracial data will continue.
