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.
There has been plenty of ball dropping in the 2010 Census. From community leaders and clergy to editorial boards, a great deal more could have been done to explain the purposes of the Census and the importance of the data gathered. The Bureau may have committed the first fumble, but the informed and aware citizens among us surely had some responsibility for recovering the ball and getting on with the game. Census 2010 has been one of the most poorly understood and executed government operations in years, but we could all have done a better job of getting the word out so the work could be done.
Not sure how you figure a red state would benefit from reduced representation???
It is clear to me how a lack of intervention from the current Administration — and thus allowing an undercount in a red state — would benefit the current administration.
MyTwoCensus was originally created as the the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 United States Census and now covers all demographics issues.
