The atlas is complete.  It should only be a matter of days to finish editing the final book in the 10-volume supplement to the United States Code.  Less time that it took to discover where the Census data is and about the same as the two days of actual work compiling those statistics for the fifty states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.  The U.S. Census Bureau terminated the collection of data for the Statistical Compendia program and publication of the Annual Statistical Abstract of the United States in portable document format (.pdf) due to budget cuts since October 1, 2011. Starting July 1, 2019 American Fact-finder will terminate and will be the primary source of all Census Bureau data, including upcoming releases from the 2018 American Community Survey, 2017 Economic Census, 2020 Census and more. 


Department of Commerce v. New York is pending before the United States Supreme Court regarding whether the district court erred in enjoining the secretary of the Department of Commerce from reinstating a question about citizenship to the 2020 decennial census on the ground that the secretary’s decision violated the Administrative Procedure Act, 5USC§701 et seq. A person suffering legal wrong because of agency action, or adversely affected or aggrieved by agency action is entitled to judicial review thereof. Any case stating a claim that an agency acted or failed to act in an official capacity shall not be dismissed nor relief therein be denied under 5USC§702. Although the citizenship question is ostensibly legal, placing it on the Census 2020 questionnaire would be arbitrary, capricious and abuse of discretion, due to flagrant persecution of mostly Hispanic un-documents aliens by the Trump Administration in general, and Census data in particular, in regards to the location of high concentrations of Hispanics, at the expense of any data whatsoever on the long standing discrimination against final accurate race statistics by means of Hispanic ethnicity under 5USC§706, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 under 42USC§2000d-§2000d-7 and equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution.   


The Supreme Court has until July 1, 2019 to make this good faith effort to prohibit incitement to ethnic violence by Census data under Art. 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 under 42USC§2000d.  For the judicial part of the sexist and racist corruption of Commerce, the Court has a duty to change the name of the Court of International Trade of the United States (COITUS) to Customs Court (CC), Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRAI-d) of the United States Code to Foreign Relations (FR-ee) and Department of Homeland Security and Domestic Security Title 6 of the United States Code and Code of Federal Regulations to Customs.  Order. To redress sexual discrimination the Census Bureau data Age and Sex category must disclose the percentage of the population that is male and female and furthermore the male employment rate. To redress the very severe racial discrimination against US racial statistics, by virtue of Hispanic ethnicity, Census data must prohibit the duplicitous Hispanic ethnicity method of failing to account for race, and distinguish race – white, Latino, African American black, Native American, Asian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander and two or more races.


Undocumented aliens require relief from the citizenship question because neither President nor Commerce Department has the mental capacity to sell them the documents they are entitled to at regular price under common articles 26-29 of the Conventions Relating to the Status of Refugees (1951) and Stateless Persons (1954). The Trump Administration is obviously scheming to commit grave breeches of Sec. 2, Art. 54 and Art. 147 of the Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilians in Times of War (1949) primarily against Hispanics.  The psychiatric diagnosis of borderline personality disorder underlies the inability of the President and his self-destructive Cabinet of budget cutters to defend themselves against The report of the Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance A/73/305 of 6 August 2018 that listed Trump as a populist leader willing to stoke racism, xenophobia and related intolerance with little regard for the human rights of many within the borders of their countries.  The only decision by the Supreme Court that could possibly enable the Census 2020 to ask the citizenship question, without endangering the innocent, is that undocumented aliens and citizens, who are cruelly treated, including those imposed upon by the Census, cannot be charged more than $10 for valid travel and identification documents under the Eighth Amendment and Art. I Sec. 9 Cl.1 of the US Constitution.

Accounting for International Development: Double Column Ledger HA-9-5-19


In 2017 developing nations received $65.6 billion, 0.08% of Gross World Product (GWP), and donor nations spent $165 billion, 0.22% of GWP on Official Development. Although the concept of diplomats from industrialized nations contributing 40% of declared revenues to developing nations is admirable and must sustained, the perpetuation of a separation in accounting for rich and poor countries must be overcome with a double column ledger of international development receipts and outlays of all nations. In 1970 the UN General Assembly formally adopted the goal that high-income countries should provide 0.7% of their national income to ODA. High-income countries were called on to become donors to poor countries. The Partners in Development report suggested that the high-income countries donate around 1% of their GDP to help the low-income countries to overcome poverty. Of that 1% of national income, around two-thirds, specifically 0.7% of national income should come through official channels, mainly government-to-government grants and low-interest loans. The remaining 0.3% of GDP should come through private contributions, mainly from corporations, foundations, individual philanthropists and charitable organizations. There are eight issues for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) and/or United Nations Assembly to resolve. The first and most important issue is that all nations are known contribute to UN regular, peacekeeping and system agency budgets and employ the consular services of diplomats of international relations respected by the UN, whether they are developing or industrialized. A double column ledger is needed to tabulate the official development assistance contributions all nations. Second, accept all UN regular, peacekeeping and specialized agency contributions, administration of international assistance, foreign affairs, consular services and international commissions spending. Third, accept all refugee assistance, whether or not it lasts more than one year. Fourth, accept all UN peacekeeping contributions, rather than 7%, and prohibit all other military assistance, military education, narcotic control, law enforcement and non-UN peacekeeping spending. Fifth, six more columns are needed to account for private corporate philanthropic international development assistance, with the help of the Center for Global Prosperity, and total private and public contributions, official and total development assistance as a percent of GDP, per capita GDP and growth of international development spending from the previous year. Sixth, development assistance must receive Tied-aid export credit if imported by recipient developing countries, free of balance of trade payment. Seventh, account for receipts of foreign and UN diplomatic missions, whether or not the nation is considered industrialized or developing, ie. New York City, United States, Geneva, Switzerland. Eighth, graduation from least developed nation status does not impair 2.5% inflation, only a reduction of priority for new foreign assistance, nor from recipient status until they have achieved a per capita GDP 150% of the global average +/-$10,000 (2018) and contributes more to their diplomats than they receive from foreign nations.


First Annual United Nations Budget 2020 HA-29-4-19


Total revenues of the United Nations System are estimated $48 billion in 2015, $49 billion in 2016 and $53 billion in 2017 by the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination table and figure 1 in the Proposed Programme Budget for the Biennium 2018-2019 A/72/6. In 2015 the UN received a total of $48,159 million in revenues, $14,519 million in assessed contributions and $33, 640 million in voluntary contributions and other revenues. United Nations System revenues statistics, produced by the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination are not corroborated by the Assembly, and are more than two to four times as large as the $21.3 billion 'extra-budgetary resources' estimated for the biennium 2018-2019 in A/72/6/.  The United Nations System is expected to grow rapidly, despite temporary reductions in the regular biannual programme budget until accounting is reformed and peacekeeping, because of the discovery of previously unaccounted for UN agency revenues, and popular demand to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Going forward to the agency distribution of the 2018-2019 biannual budget, without further information, such as the reduced UN regular and peacekeeping assessments, inflation is estimated at 2.5% annually from 2017.  This seems to be all the information regarding United Nations and specialized agency totals, required under Art. 17 of the UN Charter.


Supplemental Security Income Tax Act of 2019 HA-20-12-18


To end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030.  Revenues have stalled out at $2.5 trillion FY 17- FY 19. The FY 17 surplus was sabotaged by a -5% decline in individual income tax growth from an average annual rate of 8% 1990-2016 to 2.7% FY 17, 4.6% FY 18 and 1.7% FY 19. 8% individual income tax revenue growth must be restored by fulling funding the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) $13 billion with 3% annual growth from FY 16, rather than $12.3 billion. Customs must sell migrant workers social security number travel documents for <$10 under Art. 1 Sec. 9 Cl. 1 of the US Constitution. 26USC4611(b)(1)(B) and the letter (A)' must be repealed and Subsection (c)(3) appended to provide that all energy exports shall be taxed at a rate of 6% of wholesale value. The Federal Reserve should lower interest rates to highest rate able to return more than last year. FEMA is advised to solicit matching funds from county permits, and construction loans, before and after a disaster. In the final week of FY 18 there was an estimated $40 billion to pay $90 billion in arrears, prioritizing $30 billion welfare and energy arrears with the [$14,294 billion debt ceiling under 31USC3101 (2018)]. Because the actual amount of debt is disputed, the new debt ceiling should be [$500 billion] more than the previous year [$14,794 billion] to encourage the passage of the SSI tax on the rich, [$666 billion] [$14,960 billion] untaxed, to ensure CR 19 takes accurate measure of CMS and limits DoD spending to no more or less than 3% growth from CR 18. Spending growth by the military departments must be limited to 3% by FY 20. 2.6% military pay-raise propaganda is overruled by a 2% pay-raise + 1% net new employees = 3% annual increase in payroll. Budget cuts, collective expulsion of immigrants, sanctions, propaganda to induce volunteers in the armed forces and donor fatigue are all prohibited by the Fourth Geneva Convention Relating to the Protection of Civilians (1949). By removing [student loans savings] in brackets from the President's education budget total, FY 17 will be finally enacted. Congress must pay 2.5% annual growth in outlays for government and energy, 3% for services, education and health, 3.3% for food stamp, 4% disability and 6% for the OASI. Low income workers and beneficiaries need a 3% COLA every year inflation runs 2.5% - 3%, and the trust fund ratio is >20% to re-interpret Sec. 215(i) of the Social Security Act under 42USC415(i). Federal minimum wage must be amended from $7.25 an hour to '$7.50 in 2019 and 3% more every year thereafter.' under 29USC206(a)(1)(D). To end child poverty by 2020 tax loopholes for Title I and the rich in Section 230 of the Social Security Act under 42USC430 must be repealed. The 12.4% OASDI and SSI payroll tax on all income would be distributed 2.3% SSI 2.1% DI 8.0% OASI. The due date for the Annual Reports must be amended from April 1 to the 'summer solstice June 20-21' in Sec. 1161 of the Social Security Act under 42USC1320c-10. To alleviate pressure driving perennial OASI outlay overestimates, prematurely declaring a combined trust fund deficit beginning in 2018, the DI tax rate must be retroactively amended to 2.1% beginning in 2018 under Sec. 201(b)(1)(T) of the Social Security Act under 42USC401(b)(1)(T) before the expiration of the Bipartisan Budget Act 1 January 2019.
