Census Releases Eleven Billion Bits of Information

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

The U.S. Census Bureau released over 11 billion pieces of information today, giving a window into the socio-economic tapestry of America. What will we learn about how the country has been changing in the last decade? Some of the major takeaways: The Latino population of the U.S. is growing fast (but not so much in border states), the country's middle is emptying out, and the area around Washington, D.C. is home to some of the most affluent. Florida State University demographer Brian Stults joins the show to tell us more about the information being released.
