2010 Census: "We Can't Move Forward Until You Mail It Back"

By: Student on Tue, 03/09/2010 - 09:45

Why is it important to fill out the 2010 Census?

A story on the 2010 Census Web site reads:

Census information affects the numbers of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives. And people from many walks of life use census data to advocate for causes, rescue disaster victims, prevent diseases, research markets, locate pools of skilled workers and more.

When you do the math, it's easy to see what an accurate count of residents can do for your community. Better infrastructure. More services. A brighter tomorrow for everyone. In fact, 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:

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

Participation isn't just important—it's mandatory.
