In state estimates and the count of local planning experts Kramer noted Colorado v said hovers in the preliminary census figures As being entitled to the 435th and last congressional District to be created when new districts Are drawn in 1980. To loss of just 37 More persons statewide from the preliminary total would Cost the state the extra House seat according to census Bureau estimates he cited the preliminary census Bureau estimate for Elpaso county of 282,996 persons is at least 26,893 fewer than the Best estimates of local housing and planning officials of 309 889 persons. Kramer said. Some local officials have claimed tire Are 40.000 to 50.000 persons More than have been counted Kramer says to statewide figure by the census Bureau is 44,836 persons below to Mimer claimed by the state. For Elpaso county state figures which were based on previous census figures that have been called into question show roughly 10.000 More persons than have been counted by Tae Federal government. Kramer told director Barabba that Colorado has a lot Riding Quot on the Success of the advertising Campaign to persuade uncounted persons to Contact the local census office declares to and. A it would be a shame if some of our Federal tax dollars were to go to some other state just because some coloradans were not Revenue sharing some too other Federal Grant programs and the drawing of state legislative As Well As congressional District boundaries All depend on to final census statistics.
