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.

Note about press releases…

Many readers have noticed that I have been republishing press releases as of late. As the Census Bureau is rapidly spending much of the $15 billion associated with the 2010 Census, it is dishing out many contracts. Since my Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests askings for all 2010 Census contracts with private companies/individuals are taking forever to be processed (The Census Bureau tried to charge me $30,000 for the data and I had to appeal this charge), I want to make government contracts a matter of public record. With many companies happily sharing their basic contract information with the public through press releases, reposting the releases is the best way to share such information with the public.
