Okay, it's time for Round 11!
Deadline: February 26th, 23:59:59, GMT -3 (that is, in 14 days and a few hours).

1. Result of the Roman census for 147/46 BC.

2. Typical (measured for just one specimen) migration distance for an Amur Falcon, in km (just one leg of the route only).

3. Fuel consumption of a Lotus Elan Sprint (the 1970-73 model), in km/L.

4. 2012 third quarter cellphone sales in Brazil, in number of phones.

5. London Underground average speed, including stops at stations, in km/h.

6. Area of the Congo River basin, in km2.

7. Total number of second places in F1 races between Coulthard, Barrichello and Webber as of today.

8. Lines of source code of DOSBox as of today.

9. Length of the free-form improvisation section at the end of King Crimson's Moonchild.

10. Distance between western and eastern extreme points of São Paulo, Brazil (the city, not the state).

11. Number of numbered sections/aphorisms in Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil.

12. Estimated total population of Asian Elephants (quoted from a 2011 paper).

13. Average number of “componentes” (i.e. people in costumes dancing or playing instruments) per samba school (main group only) at the Rio de Janeiro carnival parade in 2009.

+1. Time difference between the longest and shortest final laps sent by me to a Stunts competition (LeStunts races excluded).

(The units quoted are what I will use for the answers, though you can use anything sensible as long as you mention it!)

I think there was a census in the Roman Empire in 147/46 BC. Question is how many people did it count, I guess. Dup?

Second to join ;)

I do not understand the first question.

Census as in periodically counting how many people there are in a city/country/whatever. The answer is the figure the Romans got in the mentioned year. Edit: simultaneous replies!  :D

One question: Is it the entire Roman Empire or just Rome?

Their census counted Roman citizens. Note that the definition of "Roman citizen" changed throughout history, however  :)
