New York's Hipsters Too Cool For The Census

Many New York City residents aren’t returning their census forms. The return rate is only around 50 percent, but the lowest rate of return (around 30 percent) is the hipster enclave of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These young, recent graduates with ironic mustaches and plaid shirts are apparently too busy tweeting to fill out a simple census form.

Well heck, I guess they don’t count.

I think they can count, they’re just not represented :D. But who cares, they’re hipsters :wink:

Perhaps, but they’re not “too cool” for the $5,000 fine for not turning it in.
