April 1960
New Yorker;4/16/1960, Vol. 36 Issue 9, p33
The article comments on the content of the long census questionnaire in the U.S. in 1960. The author expresses his disappointment that the questions in the census appear to be more focused on respondents' houses and access to public utilities instead of more important issues such as their views on the government or quality of life.
