Breaking: Program designed to accurately count population to start accurately counting population

by Jeremy Hooper

To many, the fact that this is even a story will be biggest surprise:

The Census Bureau, which struggles to keep up with the rapid changes in American life, is about to start categorizing same-sex married couples as families.

The 2013 American Community Survey results, which will be reported in September, will mark the first time the census integrates an estimated 180,000 same-sex married couples with statistics concerning the nation’s 56 million families. Until now, they had been categorized as unmarried partners, even when couples reported themselves as spouses.

In a related story, the Department of Motor Vehicles will continue to accurately acknowledge those who are, in fact, licensed to drive.
