"Getting the 2020 count right on a lower budget would be a huge headache for the top leadership of the Census Bureau. If, that is, the bureau had top leadership. The director of the Census Bureau, John Thompson, abruptly announced his resignation earlier this month, and the position of deputy secretary and chief operating officer has been left empty by the Trump administration.
