By Angela Hatton
Hopkinsville, KY – Taking a census is a massive project. In the year 2000, the U-S government spent 6-point-5 billion dollars on census work. At the end of the 2009, regional census offices started popping up across the country ahead of this year's count. Census Office Manager Jeff Colley works out of the Hopkinsville office, which oversees work in 22 Kentucky counties and Fort Campbell. Angela Hatton speaks with Colley on the preparations and challenges taking this year's census.
