So, I should have posted this before I did it, but I noticed that the application of the
census tag was pretty diverse, in a way which wasn't very helpful. The "tag wiki" summary was not very helpful, and the full explanation of the tag suggests co-tagging with a specific place (e.g. [usa]).
This doesn't seem to be of much use, as tags are meant to help people find questions. I would think that a single specific tag is much more effective than combining tags.

Therefore, I created a new tag,
us-census and wrote a tag wiki entry for it, and changed the tag on most of the extant questions using the
