complete and accurate count
Complete and Accurate Count
  • Why is a complete and accurate count important?
    • Every year, the federal government distributes more than $400 billion to states and communities based on census data.
    • Community planners and local governments rely on census data to make the case for providing critical social services and funding community programs that affect your quality of life.
    • An accurate census count helps to determine:
        • Planning and construction of facilities for people with disabilities
        • Transportation services and needs
        • Community-based health care initiatives and programs
    • Census data determine how many seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives.
2010 census form
2010 Census Form
  • Easy: One of the shortest census forms in history:
    • The 2010 Census form asks10 questions.
    • It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
  • Important: Census information helps determine funding for social services programs, job training, child-care and senior centers; and locations for schools, roads, hospitals and more.
  • Safe: By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including other federal agencies and law enforcement entities. All Census Bureau employees take an oath of nondisclosure and are sworn for life to protect the confidentiality of the data. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to five years, or both.
