Here’s how your finances will be affected by the citizenship question on the U.S. Census

The 2020 census could have an impact, but not in the way that the government hopes.

If a citizenship question does appear on the U.S. Census in accordance with President Donald Trump’s wishes, everything from advertising data to hospital and day-care placement may be off the mark for the next decade — and, experts say, minority communities will be hit the hardest.

The inclusion of a citizenship question on the census will prompt many individuals, immigrants and Latinos in particular, to not respond to the survey, according to research UCLA professor Matthew Barreto conducted last summer.

A low response rate would mean a lot of individuals aren’t counted, especially in areas with high immigrant populations.
