The most recent U.S. Census data was described by some as a "shellacking" of Chicago, which reportedly saw a 200,000-person drop in population over 10 years -- and Mayor Rahm Emanuel isn't going to stand for it. The mayor announced Saturday that he has challenged the U.S. Census Bureau's count of the city's population and is asking the bureau to review their data. His office estimates that as much as $3 million in additional annual federal funding could be at stake in the bureau arriving at a more "accurate" population estimate.
