Professor Dari Sylvester Counts People at Night

Wait, it’s not what you may be thinking.  Prof. Dari Sylvester is  serving as a lead enumerator for the U.S. Census Bureau during a census phase called “Group Quarters Validation.” Her role in the current census is to count individuals who reside in group residences such as nursing homes, college dorms, and shelters.  Dari reports that “The most exciting part of my role was the all night project where enumerators from across the nation attempted to count all homeless individuals residing outdoors between the hours of midnight and 7 am.”
