You haven't seen this report, but "afflicted, affected, and dominated by" sounds just about right. A census report full of incorrect figures is a horrible thing to read. I've only picked out the obviously wrong ones - sentences that say things like "64.2 percent in 2011, down from 50.6 percent in 1991". Or numbers that are obviously a whole decimal point off. There's probably loads of non-obvious mistakes, like where the author typed something like 61,452 instead of 61,542, but I am not going to double check thousands of stats. Also, someone who doesn't even attempt to adjust monetary comparisons for inflation probably has no business writing a census analysis.
