Hello Reddit, I am Ron Jarmin, the Deputy Director and Chief Operating Officer of the U.S. Census Bureau, and I have been working at the Census Bureau since 1992. It is April Fools Day today. But it is also Census Day, an important day that we use to determine who and where you are counted in the 2020 Census. I'll start answering questions at 1 pm ET.
