In March 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau said it would not include what two desired categories on the 2020 survey?
Sexual orientation and gender identity
After viewing a published list of planned topics of questions for the 2020 Census and the American Community Survey, readers found out that sexual orientation and gender identity were removed from the agenda.
LGBT rights groups have voiced a negative opinion about this decision, claiming that policymakers need reliable data from the Census about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to make educated decisions. In the past, the agency has used data it does collect to glean insights about same-sex couples. Source: NPR
