A few days ago, the sweet young blonde woman newsreader gushed on the noon newscast that the Census has announced that New Mexico’s April 2010 population was just over 2 million.
Actually, this number, 2,059,179, was released three months ago.
So much for television’s immediacy. The “news” that sunny March 15, which I think the blonde lady missed, was that the Census had done its first public release of a huge amount of New Mexico data.
For those of you interested in this material and who also are, uh, “challenged” by getting there, here are some initial steps, offered because this ain’t easy, even perhaps for the unchallenged.
On the Internet, start with www.Census.gov.
Then, from the left side menu, click on American FactFinder. There are two fact finders. The one on the left is for the new stuff.
Click on factfinder2.census.gov. This is easy to see. It’s in big blue letters.
First, though, just below where it says, “factfinder2.census.gov,” a line in smaller type invites you to “Learn more about the new American FactFinder.” The first item in your learning experience is an “informational brochure.”
