What:

The 2010 Census has already brought jobs to your community, now as we kick off the new year the 2010 Census is building momentum to ensure that your community is counted.

Come learn why many of your community members are already working as Census partners. Census data is used for congressional apportionment, legislative and congressional redistricting, as well as to determine funding and locations for schools, housing, child-care centers, shopping centers, roads and more. These improvements can have a significant impact on the lives of everyone in the community. You'll also receive key dates and learn how the Census happens.

2010 Census

This is one of the shortest census forms in history, the 2010 Census form asks 10 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Census forms will be delivered or mailed to households in March 2010. Census Day is April 1, 2010, the official day of the population count. Households should complete and mail back their responses upon receipt. Census workers will visit households that do not return their forms to take a count in person.

We move forward when you send it back. For more information about the 2010 Census, visit www.2010census.gov.
