One of Choice Magazine's Outstanding Academic Books of 2000 For those interested in understanding the historical and scientific context of the census adjustment controversy, Who Counts? is absolutely essential reading. -- Science Ever since the founding fathers authorized a national headcount as the means of apportioning seats in the federal legislature, the decennial census has been a political battleground. Political power, and more recently the allocation of federal resources, depend directly upon who is counted and who is left out. Who Counts? is the story of the lawsuits, congressional hearings, and bureaucratic intrigues surrounding the 1990 census. These controversies formed largely around a single vexing question: should the method of conducting the census be modified in order to rectify the demonstrated undercount of poor urban minorities? But they also stemmed from a more general debate about the methods required to count an ever more diverse and mobile population of over two hundred million. The responses to these questions repeatedly pitted the innovations of statisticians and demographers against objections that their attempts to alter traditional methods may be flawed and even unconstitutional. Who Counts? offers a detailed review of the preparation, implementation, and aftermath of the last three censuses. It recounts the growing criticisms of innaccuracy and undercounting, and the work to develop new enumeration strategies.

Details of the book
Who Counts?: The Politics of Census-Taking in Contemporary America

Anderson (history, U. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) and Fienberg (statistics and social science, Carnegie Mellon U.) provide a history of the American decennial census, focusing particularly on the censuses of the last three decades. They discuss the controversy of the undercount, the various lawsuits brought to contest methodology and results, challenges associated with achieving an accurate count (particularly of race and ethnicity), and the interplay of law, politics, and science that fuel the ongoing debate. They conclude by proposing a new census design for the year 2000.
