The 2010 Census and the Latino Population

The 2010 Census and the Latino Population

Kojo previews the 2010 Census and explores how an influx in immigrants -- particularly Latinos -- impacts the head count.

The decennial Census starts this month in rural Alaska, and its final tally will eventually determine how billions in federal aid is distributed. But conducting an accurate head count -- particularly among immigrants -- will be more challenging than ever. Kojo looks at the Census, and how the influx in Latino immigrants impacts the numbers and society.
