Census count is 'an act of rebellion'

Census count is 'an act of rebellion'

Gabe Layman is chairman of the Alaska Census Working Group, a coalition formed a few years ago by the statewide nonprofit Foraker Group. He said the working group includes dozens of nonprofit, governmental and tribal entities, and private companies.

In fact, Layman said, “There is no person, there is no organization that is untouched by the census.” For instance, because federal funding is often allocated at the statewide level, an undercount in rural Alaska affects urban areas too. “And we're not talking about impacts that last for a year or two years. The impacts are felt for a decade,” said Layman.
