Census Information

  • What:  The Census is a count of everyone residing in the United States.
  • Who:  All U.S. residents must be counted - both citizens and non citizens.
  • When:  You will receive your questionaire in March 2010 either by U.S. mail or hand delivery.  Some people in remote areas will be counted in person.
  • Why:  The U.S. Constitution requires a national census once every 10 years to count the population and determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  • How:  Households should complete and mail back their questionaires upon receipt.  Households that do not respond may receive a replacement questionaire in early April.  Census takers will visit households that do not return questionaires.

The importance of a Complete Count in Census Data

  • Every year, the federal government allocates more than $400 billion to states and communities based, in part, on census data.
  • Census data are used to determine locations for retail stores, schools, hospitals, new housing developments and other community facilities.
  • Census data determines boundaries for state and local legislative and congressional districts.
