The Count Germany Launches First Census since Reunification

Germany on Monday began counting its population in the first national census to be conducted since reunification. Despite some privacy fears, there is no sign of the protest and boycott movement which hampered the last national head count nearly 25 years ago.  
Interviewers head out to survey Germans. Almost a third of the population will be interviewed in the first census to take place here since the 1980s.
