Everybody counts

A Chattanooga Times-Free Press article about efforts to inform the Hispanic community about the upcoming 2010 U.S. census quoted Douglas Bachtel, UGA demographer.

“It’s important for all people to get involved with (the census) because it goes much more beyond how many representatives we have in government,” Bachtel said. “It’s understanding growing neighborhoods, changing populations, information for schools and self-help groups. So it’s important we all get involved, not just Hispanics.”
