Editor's note: Unalakleet, the Alaskan native village that Prewitt will enumerate with 20 census workers on Jan. 20, experiences severe cold weather during January (40 to 50 degrees below zero) and has limited accommodations. Also, by law the Census Bureau may not violate the confidentiality of respondents and thus cannot allow reporters or photographers to accompany the director or other census workers during the enumeration. The Public Information Office will have B-roll available on Census 2000 operations in Alaska. To obtain a copy, call 301-457-3691.
The Census Bureau has arranged with the Associated Press to provide coverage to its members. The Bureau strongly urges the electronic media to set up pool coverage as well. Networks should consider contacting their affiliates in Alaska to arrange local pool coverage.
The Census Bureau has reserved three seats for radio pool members and three for TV pool members on the 12:45 p.m. Pen Air flight from Anchorage to Unalakleet on Jan. 19 and on the return flight. A second Pen Air flight to Unalakleet via St. Mary's has been scheduled. (See the factsheet on the Census Bureau's home page <http://www.census.gov>.)
Audio and TV pool members designated by their colleagues who wish to travel to Unalakleet should identify themselves to Census Bureau media specialist David Olivera at the news conference at the Heritage Center in Anchorage.
The Census Bureau guarantees that the answers given on census forms are kept strictly confidential. Information collected in Census 2000 will provide local area data needed for communities to receive federal program funds and for private sector and community planning.
