ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage woman has been named to the U.S. Census Bureau's advisory commitee on American Indian and Alaska Native populations.
Gloria O'Neill, president and chief executive officer of Cook Inlet Tribal Council Inc., will serve on the nine-member committee. She will advise the Census Bureau on ways to get an accurate, complete count of the Alaska Native population in the 2010 census.
She will also advise the bureau on the design of the American Community Survey, which is being tested in some areas of the country and is scheduled to go nationwide in 2003.
Five committees advise the Census Bureau on race and ethnicity. The committees consist of members from the public at large as well as representatives of national, state local and tribal entities as well as nonprofit and private-sector organizations.
