Census deadline extended

U.S. Census Bureau staff watch as Joe Dorman, the chief executive officer of the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA), gives an interview during last week’s “Census Sprint to the Finish” event at the State Capitol. Organized by OICA, the event was designed to boost registrations and awareness of the upcoming Census deadline of Sept. 30; a federal court this week ordered an extension of the counting deadline to Oct. 31, and OICA intends to use the extra month to boost registration of traditionally undercounted groups including small children, Native Americans, and other people of color.
