I've never understood why we need to spend so many valuable resources on a census, when an educated guesstimate would do the trick. For example, the house I'm in right now has 1500 square feet and three people in it, which means there's one person for every 500 square feet. The United States has 103,671,742,065,706 square feet, so we can safely guesstimate that there are 207 billion people in the US, give or take. You're welcome.
