The U.S. is constitutionally required to perform a census every 10 years. We are now only 2 ½ years away from the decennial census, and our government has allocated almost $800 million this year to the upcoming task.
The 2010 census will be the first that uses handheld computers and GPS to “improve the accuracy and efficiency of the count”.
I can’t wait to find out what happens. Betcha there’ll be lawsuits.
