Michael Klatsky Geo 201 – Reflection on Chapter 2 Reflection Question # 1 [questions are in the text book, I forget exactly where] A system should be devised where a 100 percent survey is conducted in suburban and  rural area, and spatial analysis done in cities. The United States has many different vernacular regions, three of them being urban,  suburban and rural. The census is a survey of everyone in the US population, as mandated by  the constitution. In many parts of America, there are people that are suspicious about the  intentions of the survey – many inner-city residents believe the data will be used to harm them  in some way, i.e. deportation, calls to jury duty and to generally avoid trouble with government  agencies. To showcase an example, the New York Times ran a piece shortly after the 1990  census: In a government-subsidized building in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx, a  man in his early 60's shares a one-bedroom apartment with three relatives - his son, his  daughter-in-law and their 9-month-old daughter - without the knowledge of the landlord,  the welfare office and anyone else who might take an interest in such an arrangement.  He keeps the others secret out of fear, fear that if he disclosed the two other incomes in  the household, his rent would go up or he would lose his $278 a month in public  assistance.  The daughter-in-law is afraid, too: afraid that her own benefits would be in jeopardy if the
