Census count

It's yor call

July 17, 1991

Commerce Secretary Robert Mosbacher has decided not adjust the census count, a decision that mayors say will cost cities millions. Statisticians have said the census missed about 5.3 million Americans. Mosbacher said he preferred to stick to tradition and not adjust the figures based on statistics. What do you think? Should the census numbers be adjusted, or not? Were you counted, or not?

The call is local and must be made from a touch tone phone. The SUNDIAL number is 783-1800 or, in Anne Arundel County, 268-7736. When you reach SUNDIAL enter category 4600 and wait for instructions from the announcer. Call with your opinion between 10 a.m. and midnight. The results will be published in this section tomorrow.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
