Profile America — Friday, June 13th. This date 63 years ago was a Wednesday, and it can be assumed that computer technicians and engineers at the Census Bureau were a bit nervous about the day to come. On June 14, 1951, the first commercial computer, UNIVAC I, began its 12 years and 73,000 hours of number crunching for the Bureau. The successful start-up was used to process data from the 1950 Census of Population and launched today's digital revolution. Now, over three-quarters of America's approximately 120 million households have computers, and 75 percent have Internet access either at home or outside such as at schools or libraries. Computer manufacturing in the U.S. grosses over $37 billion per year. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at <www.census.gov>.
