Meet your Census Taker

 

When you fill out the census form, you’re making a statement about what resources your community needs going forward.

Accurate data reflecting changes in your community are crucial in apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and deciding how more than $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools.

That's more than $4 trillion over a 10-year period for things like new roads and schools, and services like job training centers.

2010 CENSUS  
About the Census Form

10 questions. 10 minutes

The 2010 Census form is just 10 questions, such as:

  • Name
  • Sex
  • Age
  • Date of birth
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Household relationship
  • If you own or rent

The census DOES NOT ask about the legal status of respondents or their Social Security numbers.

The mailing package from the Census Bureau consists of:

In areas served by the United States Postal Service, postal workers will deliver the initial mailing in mid-March 2010. In all other areas, census takers will deliver the form packages between March 1 and April 30, 2010.

Once you get your form in the mail, fill it in and mail it back in the postage-paid envelope provided.

The Census Bureau does not send out any confirmations that your form was received.

Any request for census information from the Census Bureau will be clearly identified as coming from the U.S. Census Bureau and as OFFICIAL BUSINESS of the United States. It is a federal offense for anyone to pretend they represent the Census Bureau. Before your household receives a mailed form, a phone call or a visit from the Census Bureau, you will be given a few days notice with a letter from the Census Bureau Director.
