 washingtonpost.com: Bureau Opposes Adjusting Census
Census Bureau officials yesterday urged against adjusting the 2000 Census to compensate for people who were missed, dashing the hopes of Democrats and civil rights leaders that such an adjustment could be used in redrawing political boundaries.
Some Democrats urged the Census Bureau to release adjusted numbers anyway, so states could consider using them for redistricting even if they were not the figures deemed more accurate by the bureau.
But census officials say they could not rely on the survey as the basis for adjusting census figures because they were troubled about possible statistical errors and discrepancies with other official documents, such as birth, death and immigration records.

 Child Support Data, as per the US Bureau of the Census, 1999
The second serious error in the data presented by the US Bureau of the Census stems from the fact that much of what is being presented is based on data about single parent families that was provided only by custodial single mothers and not corrected for by what non-custodial biological fathers report.
The policies of the US Bureau of the Census are hostile toward the traditional nuclear family and fathers, and favorable to promoting alternative types of families (perhaps "femilies" would be a better term to use).
Interestingly, the bias inherent in the presentation of the Bureau's data is present (whether on purpose or not is immaterial) in such a way that it obscures and diminishes the differences between family-types and groups of individuals who are involved in the upbringing of children.

Prewitt, the bureaus current director, said the agency “cooperated with the war effort by providing special tabulations of the Japanese American population for counties and county subdivisions.” He stressed there is no evidence that individual census records went to the War Department.
The Census Bureau still provides such data today, but it is coded to ensure that individuals’ addresses will not be known, he said.
The Census Bureau expressed its regrets once again for providing information that helped the military ferret out and detain Japanese Americans during World War II, and stressed such breaches in confidentiality will never happen again.

The House Republicans who filed suit against the Department of Commerce, the governmental parent of the Census Bureau, cited a 1957 law, designed at the time to update and expand the work of the Census Bureau, which said sampling can be used "except for the determination of population for apportionment purposes.
