The Bush Administration didn't count about five million urban dwellers in the 1990 census, so ruled a federal court in Manhattan. The decision came in response to a lawsuit filed by New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and other major cities who've been complaining since 1990 that the last Census undercounted Black and Latino residents. It's a big win for urban areas: the higher their population, the more money they get from the federal government. A re-estimate should also result in California and Arizona gaining one seat each in the House of Representatives.
