Everyone Counts: Impacts of the Census in the Lives of Californians - March 21, 2000

Once every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a census to count each and every person who is living in the United States. Information obtained from the count is used at the local, state, and federal levels to determine funding for critical services. In order for the census to be accurate, it is important that every family or individual in the United States participate. This Student-Run Press Conference considers some of the policy implications of complete a count, especially as it impacts these four policy areas: education healthcare, the state's infrastructure, and reapportionment.
