Census 2000 failed to count 509,012 Californians, more than half of them in the Southland, according to a set of much-debated, statistically revised figures released Friday by the U.S. Census Bureau. Almost 300,000 of those overlooked were Latino, the agency said. More than 25% were children.

California's declining growth rate during the past decade may net it only a single new seat in the House of Representatives when Census 2000 numbers are sent to President Clinton at the end of the year, the smallest gain for the state in a century, a Los Angeles Times analysis of population estimates shows. The recession helped slow the Golden State's population growth in the 1990s to 3.

Standing at the front of the classroom, Nhi Ho smiled continuously as he used his native tongue to speak to the recent Vietnamese immigrants studying English. "I'm one of you," Ho said, looking out at the group as they painted Easter eggs as part of a culture lesson. "You can trust me."

Twelve hours of steady rain have turned the intersection of 8th and Soto streets into a sloppy soup of urban grime. It's rush hour in Boyle Heights and most drivers don't notice the traffic on foot--the homeless crossing from corner to corner, hustling change, scoring drugs, stepping into a fast food restaurant. But homeless outreach worker Amanda Sosa sees them Thursday night and offers a sandwich, maybe a personal hygiene kit, and a pitch: "Could you answer some questions on this survey?"

The government Thursday released the first official census 2000 figures, showing a rapid growth of Latino and Asian populations--even in areas of the Deep South and Midwest. The Latino population in Wisconsin, for example, grew by 107% during the 1990s, to 192,921. In Mississippi, the Asian population grew by at least 50% and as much as 84%--a range that takes into account a new option that allowed people to check off more than one racial category for the first time.

Household incomes fell during the 1990s in much of Southern California, according to Census 2000 data released Tuesday, reversing decades of gains and tarnishing the region's historic image as a place of rising fortunes. Los Angeles County suffered the worst drop in median household income in the state, while median income also fell in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, and was stagnant in Ventura County.

As new census 2000 figures confirm Ventura County's increased racial diversity, a variety of data show the county also grew richer during the past decade. During the 1990s, upscale Ventura County lured tens of thousands of urban professionals from the Los Angeles Basin, hundreds of high-tech immigrants from Asia and thousands of immigrants from Mexico, state and federal figures show.

With the U.S. Census Bureau's preliminary results for Census 2000 showing that the nation's combined minority population could eventually become the majority, marketers are scrambling to capture the ethnic consumer base. Most are focusing their ethnic advertising on the Latino and African American markets, the two largest minority groups. But a relatively small number of advertisers are reaping the rewards of targeting the largely untapped and fast-growing Asian American market.

He came from Washington, D.C., to give them his personal guarantee. Filling out a census form this spring will not bring Big Brother to anyone's door. It won't lead to deportations, arrests or tax audits. No employee from any other government agency can look at the completed surveys, at least not for 72 years, according to federal law. Even the messenger, Kenneth Prewitt, director of the U.S.
