  • Dems’ Open Border Trickery – Gaming The Census

    AMAC Newsline ^ | 20 Feb, 2024 | Betsy McCaughey
    New York is Migrant Central — the No. 1 destination in the country for illegal border crossers — and it’s no accident. New York’s Democratic politicians benefit from the deluge. The more migrants come here, the more congressional seats and clout in the electoral college New York is able to maintain. Elon Musk spelled it out on X on Feb. 3: “Most people in America don’t know that the census is based on a simple headcount of people (including illegals) not just citizens. This shifts political power and money to states and Congressional districts with the highest number of illegals.”...
  • 2020 census shortfall may have cost Florida billions, multiple congressional seats

    Florida’s undercount in the 2020 census may have cost the state at least one, possibly two, seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and up to $21 billion in federal funding, according to a new report by Florida TaxWatch. The nonpartisan government watchdog group’s analysis found that an estimated 750,000 Floridians, or 3.48 percent of the state’s population, were not counted in the last census. This marked the state’s most significant census undercount in recent decades, despite efforts to improve participation rates between 2010 and 2020. “About 320 federal programs have census-derived federal funding. These programs affect nearly every aspect...

    The Democrat-run states such as New York and Illinois are increasing 2020 census numbers after successfully asking for a review of the once-a-decade population survey that helps determine federal funding distribution as the states struggle with population losses. The distribution of the population of California is also being changed following a review, the Associated Press reported Thursday. That report says that "the once-a-decade census produces population figures that help determine political power and the annual distribution of $2.8 trillion in federal funding. The Census Bureau has two programs giving governments opportunities to have their population totals reviewed and adjusted if...
  • New York and California Could Lose Even More Congressional Seats

    Given that 2030 is still several years away, there's a big "if" here when it comes to if such trends continue. But, if they do in fact continue, bright blue states like New York, California, and Illinois all could lose congressional seats following the 2030 census. The Hill recently covered such a trend, citing analysis from the Brennan Center For Justice. Should such trends continue, California would lose four of its 52 congressional districts, which would lose seats for only the second time. The Golden State, the most populous state in the country, lost a seat following the 2020 census....

    The population of the State of California has fallen again — below 39 million people, according to new data from the U.S. Census. The San Francisco Chronicle reported: California’s population dipped by about 75,000 from 2022 to 2023, estimates released Tuesday by the Census Bureau shows, with about 38,965,000 million people in the state this year. The state’s population has fallen since its 2019 peak of 39.5 million, though the annual loss has also slowed each year. Between 2021 and 2022, California lost a net of about 104,000 people, or 0.3%, higher than the dip of 0.2% between 2022 and...

    Anyone who has suspected that there are more women than men where they live, or vice versa, will find fodder for their suspicions in new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Whether it refutes or confirms their suspicions likely depends on where they live. Women outnumber men in the largest urban counties east of the Mississippi River, along the Eastern Seaboard and in the Deep South, while the West skews male, according to data released last week from the 2022 American Community Survey 5-year estimates, the most comprehensive source of data on American life. Those numbers were also backed up...

    The United States had 3.5 million residents who identify as Middle Eastern or North African, Venezuelans were the fastest-growing Hispanic group last decade and Chinese and Asian Indians were the two largest Asian groups, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The most detailed race and ethnicity data to date from the 2020 census was released Thursday more than three years after the once-a-decade head count, which determines political power, the distribution of $2.8 trillion in annual federal funding and holds up a mirror to how the U.S. has changed in a decade. The delay was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic...

    A news release from the Census Bureau published on Thursday morning summarized three-quarters of a century of American history succinctly. It was titled, “America Is Getting Older.” This is the Census Bureau, so the assertion was backed up with data. The median age in the U.S. rose to 38.9 years in 2022, up 0.2 years from 2021. Over the past year, 46 states saw increases in their median ages. Four states (and D.C.) saw no change. This isn’t surprising but is, instead, a continuation of a long-standing trend. But there is an important detail that’s easy to overlook here: The...

    The latest Census figures show that there were 5,149,139 people in the State on Census night, which took place in April last year. That is an 8% increase on April 2016 figures. The Census population of 2022 summary results also show the average age of the population increased from 37.4 in 2016 to 38.8 in 2022, compared with 36.1 in 2011. The number of people with dual Irish citizenship was 170,597, which represents a 63% increase from 2016.

    Major urban areas in the U.S. are regaining some of the residents they lost when the COVID-19 pandemic pushed many out of cities into less dense areas, according to new Census data. U.S. metro areas grew by roughly 0.4 percent between 2021 and 2022, the Census estimates, with around two-thirds of the 384 recorded metro areas seeing population increases in that same period. Many metro areas in the south saw increases in the new data: the metro area around Phoenix, Ariz., crossed 5 million and the Villages, Fla., metro area went up by a significant 7.5 percent.

    American Thinker ^ | 04/07/2023 | Kathleen Brush
    The government is presently considering modifying the Census to identify recipients for reparations. If the idea is operationalized, a possible future headline will be “2030 Census Shows America Has a Black Majority.” That would confirm that this was the U.S. government’s most brain-dead idea ever. However, with a couple of tweaks, it could be a brilliant idea.The government’s idea (at page A6) is to ask all who check the “black” race box on the Census if they are descended from American slaves. The Census is not validated, and there’s nothing in the plan to change that. Anyone can check the...

    President Joe Biden... is now reviving former President Barack Obama’s idea of adding yet one more racial category to our Balkanized nation and effectively turning Hispanics into a race, not an ethnicity. In a document from the Office of Management and Budget, published on Jan. 27 in the Federal Register, a working group of the U.S. Census Bureau proposes to create a category for people who can trace their origin to Middle East or North African (to be called MENA). Secondly, it proposes to collapse the current two questions on ethnicity and race into one.... The reason two questions have...

This year, California saw more than 343,000 residents leave the state — more than any other in the nation — followed by nearly 300,000 residents who left New York, and almost 142,000 residents who fled Illinois.

    London CNN — England and Wales are no longer majority Christian, and are slightly less White than a decade ago, newly released 2021 census data show. The two British nations have fallen from 59% self-described Christian in 2011 to 46% in 2021, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) announced Tuesday. The number of respondents saying they had no religion was the biggest gainer, rising from 25% a decade ago to 37% now. There was also a rise in the number of Muslims, from 5% in 2011 to 6.5% in 2021. The percentage of respondents saying they were Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish,...

    A recent bombshell report reveals that U.S. census errors could provide significant and unfair advantages for Democrats in future elections, so naturally America’s corporate media have chosen to let those errors quietly slide. Back in May, the U.S. Census Bureau released findings from its 2020 Post-Enumeration Survey (PES), a survey in which “the Census Bureau interviews a sampling of households across the country and then compares the results with actual responses from those households in the original 2020 Census records.” As noted by the Census Bureau, the results of the survey “cannot be used to change the final census count.”While...

    A senior adviser to the U.S. Census Bureau recalls sounding the alarm about the agency’s population count in 2020. “Me and a couple of other people at the Census Bureau were pounding the table saying there are going to be problems,” Adam Korzeniewski told The Daily Signal. “The sad thing is that no one cared,” Korzeniewski said. Two years later, the Census Bureau has admitted to undercounting six relatively conservative states and overcounting eight liberal states. Critics contend that this inaccurate count now favors blue states over red states in determining Electoral College votes and seats in the House of...

    The 2020 Census admits having undercounted in six states while it overcounted in eight. Oddly enough, most of the undercounted states were red states, and most of the overcounts were in blue states. Census numbers are only surveyed once every ten years. The implications for errors of this magnitude are significant for voter representation, especially since citizens must wait another ten years to redo the count. According to the census website, “data collected by the census determine[s] the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives (a process called apportionment) and is also used to adjust...
