There's only one way to fix the incorrect Census tally... murder.

Event: Census Violence is an event in Fallout 76.

Quick walkthrough

Defend a robotic census taker as he is attacked by waves of enemies.

Detailed walkthrough

Start by interacting with the census taker. After he is done talking he will begin a five minute countdown where the Vault Dweller should defend him. During this time he wanders around while waves of enemies spawn. After the timer is up the quest is completed. If the Census Taker is destroyed, the quest is failed.
