Census humor

I've only ever used the SF-3 myself. Randall Munroe studied physics, so I'm impressed with his familiarity with social science datasets.

Fun fact I did not know until today - Munroe graduated from Christopher Newport University the same year I graduated from William and Mary. CNU is just a few miles down the road from W&M. My cousin went there, and Kate did a lot of joint stuff with the school's sister chapter of her sorority (Phi Mu).


  1. Fun Fact: Every XKCD cartoon has a mouseover text. This one says:

    "Suckville is considered by the Census Bureau to be part of the Detroit metropolitan statistical area, despite not being located anywhere near Detroit."
