«In 2020, the federal government set about the once-a-decade task of counting the nation’s population. But 2020 was no ordinary year, and the census, like everything else in American life, faced a perfect storm of pandemic, presidential election, and political polarization. Taken together, these issues raised the question of whether the results are, in census jargon, “fit for use” for the next decade. Most particularly, are the resulting data biased in ways that would lead to underrepresenting minorities and overrepresenting non-Hispanic white populations?*»

The Raoul Dandurand Chair, in collaboration with the Department of Political Science of the Université du Québec à Montréal, is pleased to welcome Margo Anderson, Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for a conference. 

This event will be held in English and hosted by Jean-Guy Prévost, professor at the Department of Political Science (UQAM)
