census

I followed, a little, the funding fights around the Census. but I had no idea that until today that it’s a function of the Commerce Department. On the one hand – that’s totally bizarre. On the other – it makes so much sense.

update: i didn’t know about the census discussion at scatterplot when i posted this. but anyway – if the census isn’t really about people or populations but about commerce, then i have a new understanding about why we have a broad disagreement about funding it. (or am i misunderstanding what the commerce dept does?)
