PricewaterhouseCoopers Census Study:
<< Back to Map


These estimates show what will happen if the same errors in the 1990 Census show up again in 2000. That means that you can make a difference in how these numbers actually turn out by encouraging your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to fill out their census forms and mail them in. REMEMBER: Your responses on the Census forms or to Census Bureau employees are confidential by law. They cannot be shared with anyone -- not even other government agencies like the IRS and INS.
