Census 2010 PDF Print E-mail

Census2010_with_Hands_ColorUNITED STATES CENSUS

BE COUNTED IN 2010

The U. S. Constitution requires a national census once every ten years.  All U. S. residents are to be counted – both citizens and non-citizens.  The count will determine representation in the U. S. House of Representatives for the next ten years.  Census data

will be used to determine allocation of federal funds for community services, such as

school lunch programs, and senior citizen centers, and new construction, such as highways and hospitals.

Only the compiled data is used.  By law the Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s responses with anyone, including other federal agencies and law enforcement entities.  Census workers will have identification.

You will receive a questionnaire with ten questions in March either by U. S. mail or hand delivery. The individual in whose name the housing unit is owned or rented should complete the questionnaire.   The questionnaire has specific instructions about counting all the people, including babies, living in the house, apartment or mobile home.  April 1, 1010 is the official day for the count.  The form is designed to provide information for as many as twelve people living at one address.   The form also gives telephone numbers to call if you have questions or need help completing the form.

In the last census only 80% of the residents of Buhler were counted.  This time let’s make it 100%!  It is a simple form, it’s safe to respond, there should be a postage-paid envelope for the completed form, and it’s important to our community and our nation as we plan for the next ten years.
