The Census Bureau is six months into the first restructuring of its field offices in 50 years.

When Census announced the 18-month restructuring, it cited a need to “keep pace with modern survey collection methods” and a need to reduce costs by as much as $18 million each year.

Thomas Mesenbourg, the deputy director of the Census Bureau, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss how the restructuring is going.
