ABSTRACT
The article discusses the United States Census and why it is necessary for a country to keep track of its population. The United States surveys its citizens every 10 years to learn basic information about them. Although the last census, taken in 2000, was thought to be one of the most accurate, it still missed about 1 in every 100 people. Censuses are important not only for information, but for states to determine how many political representatives and electoral votes it will have.
