Census Undercount and the Undercount of the Black Population.
Nguyen, Phung
Western Journal of Black Studies, v20 n2 p96-103 Sum 1996
Argues that blacks have been disproportionately undercounted in the census and this undercount has resulted in such biased statistics as proportions of black female-headed households, victimization rates of black males, or crude death rates of blacks. Further, these statistics are biased upward and downward, and together they generate distorted pictures of blacks in U.S. society. (GR)
