San Francisco has officially challenged the U.S. Bureau of Census' preliminary housing count, accusing the agency of undercounting city residents. "The severity of this undercount will cost San Francisco political representation and millions in funding. We must count the thousands of people who live in the housing units missed by the Census Bureau to get our fair share," Mayor Art Agnos said in a letter to the agency.
