Penn State University Libraries To Host NPR’s Hansi Lo Wang October 19

Award-winning NPR journalist Hansi Lo Wang will discuss the census with the Penn State community via a virtual event beginning at 4 p.m. on Monday, October 19.

The discussion, titled “The People, Power, and Money Behind The Census,” is hosted by University Libraries and the McCourtney Institute for Democracy.

Wang is NPR’s national correspondent for the 2020 United States Census, which marks the once-a-decade population count for the nation. He received the American Statistical Association’s Excellence in Statistical Reporting Award in 2019.

Wang has covered the event extensively in his career, including recent controversy regarding the Trump administration’s attempts to add a citizenship question to the census.

“I see this conversation with Hansi as a deeper dive into what’s happening with the census this year and where we go from here as data collection wraps up,” Jenna Spinelle, a member of the McCourtney Institute’s Democracy Works podcast, said in a release. “The McCourtney Institute is very grateful to the Libraries for creating an opportunity to raise awareness about this important, and often overlooked, issue.” 

For more information about the event, contact Andrew Dudash, event coordinator and librarian for political science, policy studies, and government information.
