The 2020 Census' citizenship question is but one of the problems for the once-a-decade nationwide count. Amid a  labor shortage in the Granite State, the census here will partially rely on a volunter workforce. Funding for the count hasn't grown adequately since 2010 and a decision on a proposed question about citizenship is expected from the Supreme Court this month. We get an update on the Census on the state level and hear arguments on how the citizenship question could impact the count.
