“The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.”

The U.S. Constitution empowers the Congress to carry out the census in “such manner as they shall by Law direct” (Article I, Section 2). The Founders of our fledgling nation had a bold and ambitious plan to empower the people over their new government. The plan was to count every person living in the newly created United States of America, and to use that count to determine representation in the Congress.

Enshrining this invention in our Constitution marked a turning point in world history. Previously censuses had been used mainly to tax or confiscate property or to conscript youth into military service. The genius of the Founders was taking a tool of government and making it a tool of political empowerment for the governed over their government.

But most importantly is the cultural recording of Human Beings existence and history. Witness the Tiano people of the caribean who were considered extinct through a genocide brought about by Columbus and the european spainish conquest.

    This domain seems to get a large ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It offers a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to talk about is the most important factor.
