2010 Census – We Can’t Move Forward Until You Mail It Back.

 Praise Him Saints;

So I was checking my mailbox and noticed that I had already received my 2010 Census form. To my surprise the form was very easy to fill out (see a sample of it above). Just wanting to do my part by making sure that everyone fills out their 2010 Census form when you get it in the mail.

 “The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years.

 The 2010 Census will help communities receive more than $400 billion in federal funds each year for things like:

  • Hospitals
  • Job training centers
  • Schools
  • Senior centers
  • Bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects
  • Emergency services

The data collected by the census also help determine the number of seats your state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.We can’t move forward until you mail it back.

In March of 2010, census forms will be delivered to every residence in the United States and Puerto Rico. When you receive yours, just answer the 10 short questions and then mail the form back in the postage-paid envelope provided. If you don’t mail the form back, you may receive a visit from a census taker, who will ask you the questions from the form. The majority of the country will receive English–only materials. Households in areas with high concentrations of Spanish-speaking residents may receive a bilingual (English/Spanish) form.

Any personal data you provide is protected under federal law.”

With that being said Saints, make sure you do your part and fill out the 2010 Census. It’s not junk mail. For questions and answers you can go to http://2010.census.gov/2010census/.
