Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act


As the U.S. Supreme Court makes its historic decision on The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the authentic, electronic version of the law is available on the U.S. Government Printing Office's (GPO) Federal Digital System (FDsys). GPO authenticated the document by digital signature. This signature assures the public that the document has not been changed or altered.

Focus on Documents


2011 notable documents of South Carolina and of Federal Government agencies are featured in a new display at the State Library. The Library recognized the 10 documents and websites of South Carolina in a ceremony on May 7 and the American Library Association and Library Journal announced the Notable Federal and State Documents of 2011 on May 16, 2012.

2010 Census Coverage Results Posted


The Census Bureau has released an estimate of the undercount and overcount in the 2010 Census, providing a measure of the accuracy of it. The results found that the 2010 Census had a net overcount of 0.01 percent, meaning about 36,000 people were overcounted. This compares with a net overcount of 0.49 for the 2000 Census and a net undercount of 1.61 for the 1990 Census.

Public Health Campaigns: Getting the Message Across


LOOK AT ME! Do I have your attention? What do I need to do to change the world? Catching the attention of a passerby or reader can be a challenge. Teachers, authors and media people work hard to construct written materials in ways that will make a reader, even a casual one, stop what he is doing in his busy world and take note of the message.
