“This productivity increase “more than offset the staff shortage,” Fontenot said, referring to the fact that low unemployment is making it difficult for the bureau to hire …”.

“While the results were encouraging, he said, Census will not “depend solely on productivity increases to offset low unemployment numbers throughout the nation, and we need to encourage applicants in other ways.” Read the full article here.
