Questionable Question: Local Pols and Experts Condemn Adding Citizenship Question to Census
Brooklyn Daily, 4.13.18
The most recent census data shows that Asians make up 20–30 percent of the population in the three Council districts spanning Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, and Coney Island, and that Hispanics make up about 44 percent of the population of Sunset Park and 14 percent of the other neighborhoods. A map by the Center for Urban Research at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York shows that parts of those neighborhoods — including parts of Coney Island, Dyker Heights, and Sunset Park — are already some of the most underrepresented and uncounted communities in the country.
