Does anyone know if the census has ruled on the challenges in which cities brought forward about their population numbers?

I'm sure MANY cities will given the numbers. Here the census supervisors were really upset because the door to door people were paid regardless of how many people they were able to contact. Turns out a ton of them, especially on the west and south sides which are seen as more dangerous, didn't even bother to go door to door and just kinda chilled all day long. Surprise surprise, the counts in those neighborhoods were down up to 33% from 2000 even though houses getting mail, school enrollment, transit usage and trash collections were all fairly stable or even growing a bit.

I helped the census take their numbers in 2010 and knw a lot about demographics. Cities have 4 years to challenge their numbers. But only IF their numbers are adjusted (doesnt usually happen), it wont be published until 2018, just B4 the next census.
