My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

Iraqi Census

If you think keeping track of people in America is difficult, imagine how hard it is in Iraq. Today, Iraq announced that it will hold its first census in 22 years. However, it will be conducted very differently than the 2010 U.S. Census.  America is now in the process of hiring approximately 200,000 people to work specifically for the U.S. Census Bureau. In October,  Iraq plans to send 250,000 school teachers into local communities to gather population data. Which method will be more effective? Hopefully by Census Day, April 1, 2010, we’ll know the answer.
