    Did you know that there are few things in the world that have more of an influence on our government than that census that is conducted every 10 years in the United States? It's true!

    In this episode we talk about...

    • a census being in the Constitution,
    • fines for people who don't comply with the census,
    • how census data is used to configure representatives and districts,
    • the 72 year rule, 
    • and much, much more!
