I don’t know, I sort of think the Feds would have “included” the “eight most underserved neighborhoods”* in San Francisco during the last census irregardless of whether the “25-member San Francisco Complete Count Committee of civic, community, faith-based and labor leaders” existed or not.
Anyway, the numbers from the press release below don’t add up, they don’t square with reality.
Of course any city or geographic area is welcome to spend money on a consultant, as San Francisco and Fun Diego did, to challenge the Feds and raise the count. That’s the system, baby. But you gotta remember that you’re comparing apples to oranges is all I’m saying.
Serving the “most underserved” in Alamo Square last year:
U.S. Census Director Robert M. Groves, seated betwixt Board of Supervisors President David Chiu and City Attorney Dennis Herrera at a meeting a couple years back:

Anyway, all that is something to keep in mind as you peruse the recent release, seen after the jump
*I’ll bet the real estate industry people would just loooove this phrase. Anyway, they are, officially, the Bayview, Chinatown, the Excelsior, the Mission, South of Market, the Tenderloin, Visitation Valley and the Western Addition
