In an article about race and identity in the census in today's
_Chicago Tribune_ I saw the following sentence: "What that data are
easier to quantify, critics say a rote list of boxes and checkmarks
can't adequately reflect all the racial and ethnic
transformations." (The antecedent of "that data" is "migration, family
size and housing patterns.")
