Paltry NYC census numbers a referendum on paltry stewardship of Schumer and Bloomberg

3/27/11, "US Census counters used "highly suspect" methods to count New York City residents, Sen. Charles Schumer said yesterday, calling the final tally "dead wrong."

  • "The Census Bureau needs to go back to the drawing board," said Schumer, who wants an investigation into Census methods.

Schumer is the latest official to complain that something is wrong with the Census tally, which showed the city grew by a paltry 166,855 residents -- a measly 2.1 percent -- over the last decade.

"Specifically, Schumer wants to know what did Census takers do to track down people besides going door to door.

  • Did they reach out for tenant lists or contact building management?" said a source.

If the Census tally of 8.175 million residents is not changed, the city would lose hundreds of millions of dollars in federal money.

Mayor Bloomberg also believes the Census missed hundreds of thousands of people
