$478 million.

That's the estimated amount of money that was lost in overall federal funding to the states for 2001-2011, as a result of 2000 Census' net undercount of 3.3 million people. And, since the Census is not a "zero sum game," that money was not redistributed to other states with higher counts - it was simply not awarded, period.

Now that's scary.
