Census radio

On Wednesday the Diane Rehm show spent an hour looking into the 2010 Census as well as talking about its history.  While the debate over sampling may not be active, the conversation about the appropriate limits of the Census is likely to make many newspapers and blogs over the next several weeks.

"Representation and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers ... . The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct." -- Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States
