"March to the Mailbox" this Saturday - 2010 Census

Banners and flags will fly all around Dallas this coming Saturday, reminding everyone about the 2010 Census form.  It's time to "Fill it Out and Mail it back."

This Saturday, April 10, "March to the Mailbox" to return your 2010 Census form.

Why:  The U.S. Constitution requires a national census once every 10 years.

A Complete Count:  The Importance of Census Data
  • Every year, the federal government can allocate more than $400 billion to states and communities based, in part, on census data.
  • Census data guide local decision-makers on where to build new roads, hospitals, child-care and senior citizen centers, schools, and more.
  • Businesses use census data to locate supermarkets, new housing and other facilities.
  • Census data determine how many seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The 2010 Census is important.

The 2010 Census questionnaire takes only 10 minutes to complete.

Don't forget:  "Be Counted in 2010."
