What is the Census?
The U.S. Census is a system that counts every resident in the United States. Census Day is April 1, 2010. The U.S. Bureau will mail census questionnaires to all households in February/March 2010; residents are asked to return the questionnaire by mail.
This process is required by the constitution to be recorded every 10 years. It is very important and crucial to your community to participate in the Census. The process cannot move forward until each person has mailed in their form.
This system is crucial to the development of your community. In fact, the information the census collects helps to determine how more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding each year is spent on infrastructure and services like:
- Job training centers
- Senior centers
- Bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects
- Emergency services
