Open Phones: 11th Census Question Roulette

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

A word cloud using responses from the Census 11th Question submissions (Valerie Lapinski)

The U.S. Census asks 10 questions that try to capture the demographics of our communities. But there are millions of other stories to tell about who we are. So, we've been asking you to come up with an 11th question - a question that you think would get the real stories of our communities. Listeners have submitted hundreds of 11th questions. Check them out here.

I just asked my husband the scariest 11th question you asked: "What is my worst character flaw?" That's a no-win, huh? He said---surprise, surprise---"Nagging." If he had asked me in reverse, I would have said his was "absent-mindedness"...for leaving the fridge door open, etc. But I guess he didn't need to ask!

I started doing tri-state relocation consulting in 1980 and did so until 2008. I feel that there have not been many changes in all the counties from which people can commute into NYC. When families were looking for houses, a good school system ALWAYS trumped everything, and the house prices reflected that.
