2010 is the census year. Every 10 year, the nation counts the number of its citizens and their demographics.

For many reasons, being counted is very important. The funding that our local governments get from the state depends much on the head counts in each municipality. Also 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 hospitals, job training centers, schools, senior center, bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects and emergency services.

Census workers will canvass door-to-door to collect census data from households who have not returned a census form beginning in late April. you will be asked only 10 questions. For more information about the census, please visit  http://2010census.gov
