Census Figures

NPR's Pam Fessler reports on the impact of the first figures released from the 2000 census. An explosion of Hispanic and Asian populations in New Jersey, Wisconsin, Mississippi, and Virginia -- the first states to be reported -- is expected to transform politics and public policy at every level and in nearly every community. Figures from remaining states are to be released in the coming weeks.
