WASHINGTON -- Two scholars say in a new research paper that despite earlier denials, the Census Bureau was deeply involved in the roundup and internment of Japanese Americans at the onset of U.S. entry into World War II.

The academics say the Census Bureau's involvement included identifying concentrations of people of Japanese ancestry in geographic units as small as city blocks, lending a senior Census Bureau official to work with the War Department on the relocation program and a willingness to disclose names and address of Japanese Americans.

While it is common today for the Census Bureau to publish reports that detail the number of people of a given race living in an area as small as a city block, such information was generally not available in the 1940s. But the authors of the paper contend that the Census Bureau provided such detailed information as well as age, sex, citizenship and country of birth to the War Department, now the Defense Department, on only one group -- Japanese Americans.

In 1941 and '42, the paper says, Census Bureau officials believed that such information was valuable to the War Department's effort in rounding up Americans of Japanese ancestry.

The paper, "After Pearl Harbor: The Proper Role of Population Data Systems in Time of War," was written by William Seltzer, a statistician and demographer at Fordham University, and Margo Anderson, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee whose area of expertise is the census.

Seltzer and Anderson plan to present the paper at the annual meeting of the Population Association of America next week in Los Angeles.

The practices described in the paper did not appear to have violated laws governing the census, which prohibit the bureau from disclosing information on individuals. But the authors indicated that Census Bureau officials appeared to be willing to provide such data. What is not clear is whether they were asked to do so.

"We're by law required to keep confidential information by individuals," the paper quotes the director of the Census Bureau, J.C. Capt, as saying at a meeting of the Census Advisory Committee in January 1942. But if the defense authorities found 200 Japanese Americans missing and they wanted the names of the Japanese Americans in that area, Capt said, "I would give them further means of checking individuals."

The Census Bureau often boasted that its conduct in the relocation of Japanese Americans had been its finest hour because it resisted pressure to provide explicit data to the War and Justice Departments.

But Census Bureau officials do not dispute the findings of the paper. They say, however, that the strengthening of the laws protecting the confidentiality of data on individuals and the environment today would make a repeat of those abuses unlikely.

Japanese Americans have long suspected that the Census Bureau played a prominent role in the roundup and relocation of 120,000 residents of Japanese ancestry to detention camps in the interior.

"We've always suspected this," said Norman Mineta, a former California congressman who was relocated with his family from San Jose to a detention camp in Wyoming. "After all, they are the keeper of this kind of information."

On Dec. 9, 1941, two days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Census Bureau produced a report titled, "Japanese Population of the United States, Its Territories and Possessions." The next day it issued a report on the Japanese population by citizenship and place of birth in selected cities. The next day it published another report, this one on the Japanese population by counties in states on the West Coast. All reports were based on data from the 1940 census.

Capt justified the speed with which the bureau produced these reports by saying at meeting of the Census Advisory Committee in January 1942: "We didn't want to wait for the declaration of war. On Monday morning we put our people to work on the Japanese thing."

The United States declared war on Japan that Monday afternoon.

Yeah...and they are going to let you in their bunker when shtf too! Would be nice, wouldn't it, especially since our tax dollars paid for the bunker! We are so screwed!

Don't answer the census and don't answer your door when they come to ask you why you didn't answer the census...then get ready to fight when they send that drone over your house!

General Sherman used census data and maps on his march to the sea. He knew who was where and what resources were available.
Heart of the heroes, ride.
Up through an empty house of stars,
Being what heart you are,
Up the inhuman steeps of space
As on a staircase go in grace,
Carrying the firelight on your face
Beyond the loneliest star.

Hitler used the census to locate his victims.
I just watched a show where liars were trying really hard to convince the audience that the census is not going to be used to send people to internment camps. The very fact that the liars think it is important to convince people of this makes me cautious.

ACSA announced the unanimous adoption of a resolution in rejection of IBM Corporation proposed for ACSA corporate membership. ACSA announced that further investigation of IBM's circa 1940's role implementing Automation Schemes and delivering IBM USA manufactured equipment custom designed to facilitate Death Camp Genocide in NAZI Germany, realignment of railroads to transport more than 6,000,000 European Jews to them, and delivery of the Census Documents IBM had collected for Europe's Governments to NAZI Germany so that the Jews could be located "efficiently" constituted conspiracy to commit the most heinous crime against humanity in the history of humanity. Among some 2500 documents, document archives and document libraries cited in the remarkable revelation as "direct evidence of Thomas J. Watson's and IBM Corporation's direct involvement in Genocide, Treason and War Crimes", the resolution condemned IBM for "illegal circumvention of American Law in profiting by and participating in the inhumane genocide and murder of 6,000,000+ during World War II, and contribution of competitive economic and military advantage through computation technology to a regime so murderous and insane that it cost the lives of over 20,000,000 Europeans, namely the regime of Adolf Hitler".

Well of course they were, just as IBM was the needed part for the holocaust.

The nazi's didn't just bust into towns screaming where are the j00den...

No, they had the census, they had it computed out street by street, who they were looking for and everything.

Remember the tattoo's everyone got in the work camps?

Serial numbers.

It was a computer driven slave labor/extermination campaign, and it was driven from the census.

I'm still at odds on what to put on mine.

If I was out of the country during the 'magical date', does that mean I can submit it blank?
