Hi Tamara, Actually the census info isn't that bad. Agreed though - The gerrymandering on carving up the congressional districts can involve some pretty nasty political infighting. RonL. (Who used to have some 'stat-buddies' who worked for the US Census and has heard firsthand about some of the interesting problems they've run into and some of the fancy 'hi-tech' techniques they have used there.) -----Original Message----- From: Tamara Abbey [mailto:Abbey at abbeyink.com] This also becomes significant since we just had a census last year and our government is representative of the people. That means we have a new head count (I know, woefully inaccurate, I'm sure), but 10 years ago there was some pretty nasty fighting over Congressional districts and who would be in control of the final map.
