The US Census 2010 is Coming

The US Census 2010 has started its 2010 national census. Forms have been mailed to a chosen group. If you have received your 2010 Census form by mail, please complete it and return it so you will be one of the first citizens to be counted. The census is conducted by the US Census Bureau and is required under the US Constitution to be conducted once every ten years. The census is a count of everyone living in the United States, citizens and non-citizens. As a result of the census, the number of seats each state will have in the US House of Representatives is decided. Census data also helps to determine boundaries for local and state legislative and congressional districts. Federal government allocations are also based , in part, on census data.
