There's something about some of these that just doesn't seem right to me, who do we contact to initiate a recount?

Anyone know what day next week they'll release the information for IL, SD, OK, & TX? The US Census has kind of been a bit of a disappointment for me so far, nothing to my expectations has been met yet, and when they have all their information released, it will still show information that I consider dated.

They really should have waited until the end of 2010 to collect all of the information instead of April. A few months makes some of the largest differences.

Friday I think.....I think I read something that they ship the data on Thursday 2:00 EST and reveal the data 24 hours later publically.

Chicago really needs to figure out how to get people to respond. Only a 66% participation rate when the forms were mailed - some of the worst in the country, coupled with a lower rate in the house to house walks as well due to all the multi unit buildings where it's much harder to track people/units down - and surprise surprise they come up 150,000 short of what they were expecting when they added up all the numbers. I yelled at 5-6 of my friends for throwing away the census forms. They said they didn't care. They live in buildings with 100 units though, so the house to house people never found them at all.

The interesting thing is all the new housing units and population gains in the gentrified/gentrifying areas of the city. I'm curious to see what the population levels are on a community by community basis. It looks like there must have been some HUGE loses in the bad areas of the city.

The counts have the white/asian/hispanic populations rising, with the black population dropping by 165,000.

Just curious if any like maps will be available based on absolute population change. The percentages can be a little misleading depending on county population size

That's so messed up, Chicago's population dropped by a lot, the US Census officially recorded it as 2,695,598. They did some serious over counting or under counting on all their estimates in the passed decades.

What the devil? Is this because Chicago had the worst city wide response to the US Census forums?

I have no idea. Somebody on the Chicago forum posted that over 165,000 Blacks left the city over the decade. That's pretty significant. I never thought Houston was going to pass Chicago for a long time as far as population goes. Now, I think it's a good possibility that Houston does pass Chicago within the next 20 years. Sad for a great city.
