Host Bob Edwards talks with David Olivera of the Alaska Census Bureau about the launch of Census 2000 in a rural Alaskan eskimo village. The early launch hopes to counter the poor response to the last census. In 1990 Alaska had the worst census response in the country, and native Americans and minorities are especially under-counted.
