Correspondent, National Desk

Hansi Lo Wang (he/him) is a national correspondent for NPR reporting on the people, power and money behind the U.S. census.

Wang was the first journalist to uncover plans by former President Donald Trump's administration to end 2020 census counting early.

Wang's coverage of the administration's failed push for a census citizenship question earned him the American Statistical Association's Excellence in Statistical Reporting Award. He received a National Headliner Award for his reporting from the remote village in Alaska where the 2020 count officially began.
