2000 Census

There are many social scientific questions that only the census can answer, and many more that it answers with more authority than any other source of data. As the largest social survey of the United States, the census is capable of tracking small groups and finely distinguished slices of the population. It is, for example, our only source of information about smaller racial and ethnic minorities, specific occupations, and particular income categories.
