Those Census 2000 'news alerts' that kept us informed of the
Congressional activities surrounding the census are back. For more than
four years the Census 2000 Initiative, a coalition of civil rights,
women's rights, labor and public interest organizations supporting
scientific sampling for Census 2000, distributed the News Alerts
detailing the planning and then the taking of the most recent decennial
census. Previous issues of the News Alerts, and fact sheets on all
aspects of Census 2000, are available at the Initiative's web site at
I was on the mailing list for the 'news alerts' and the last one was
published in September 2000. Today I just receive a new 'news alert'
and a notice that the Census 2000 Initiative Group would continue
publishing them throughout 2001. They sent it along as a Word file
which i have attached.
