The Census Bureau said on Monday that field data collection will stop by Sept. 30, to meet an end-of-the-year deadline to turn in numbers. This includes door-knocking and self-response options, such as filling out the survey online, by phone or by mail.
Data collection had been set to end in October.
In a statement, the bureau said it’s also working to figure out how to comply with presidential memorandums directing undocumented immigrants to not be counted in the 2020 Census.
