The Current Population Survey (CPS) in US – A massive fraud coming out of its Philadelphia region

Back in 2012 a whistleblower told the Census Bureau about a massive fraud coming out of its Capture d’écran 2015-08-19 à 09.06.00Philadelphia region.

One of the guys who was supposed to be going door-to-door surveying people in the Washington, DC, area about their employment situation was faking the responses.

As it turned out, that guy — Julius Buckmon — was falsifying loads of responses. In fact, the number was said to be more than 100 a month for the Current Population Survey (CPS), which is turned into the nation’s unemployment rate.

The word is that Buckmon had been doing this for at least five years before he was caught and that his actions were known to some insiders. How high up this scandal went, even Buckmon didn’t know.

Buckmon, whom I interviewed before he went into hiding, said higher-ups encouraged him to cheat.
