North Carolina's Argument Supports Utah, Says Utah Attorneys

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The arguments made by North Carolina in Utah's lawsuit against the Census Bureau actually support Utah's case, claim the state's attorneys. Utah filed a response last Wednesday to North Carolina's request that the court dismiss the lawsuit or rule against Utah without a hearing. Utah is arguing that the Census Bureau's enumerators guessing of the number of people living in a house when no one could be reached is illegal, and that this 'imputation' benefitted North Carolina, "They're denying that imputation is a form of sampling. In our opinion, what they did in this case is much worse," said Ray Hintze, chief deputy in the Utah Attorney General's Office. "If it's distinguishable, it's worse than what was struck down." Utah is asking for these numbers to be excluded from the Census because the US Supreme Court ruled in 1999 that the US Constitution requires a count of actual persons and prohibits guessing or scientific adjustment. An earlier lawsuit by Utah alleged that the Census Bureau should have counted overseas LDS missionaries.
