The author reflects on the census based on congressional redistricting on 2010 in the U.S. He said that the public is worried because the event is usually influenced by political issues and lobbyists. He added that the redistricting provides an opportunity to politicians to take care of their interest, restoring the art of compromising and bipartisanship.
