The 2010 Census is one year away and preparations are in full swing. Activities
to lay the groundwork for the nationwide effort to count everyone residing in
the United States are visible across the country. 2010 Census data inform
critical decisions from congressional representation to the allocation of more
than $435 billion annually in federal funds. Beginning in April and May 2009,
United States residents will see that the 2010 Census is under way in their
communities through operational milestones including:
- Address Canvassing: Approximately 140,000 census workers,
hired from within each local community, will cover most neighborhoods to
identify each residential address. This will help ensure everyone residing in
the United States receives a 2010 Census questionnaire. This is the first
visible sign that the decennial census is approaching and the first use of
handheld technology by the Census Bureau. The result of this effort will be
the most comprehensive U.S. address list in existence.
- Partnership Recruitment: Partnerships with for-profit and
non-profit organizations and government entities are vital to raising
awareness of and increasing participation in this historic event. More than
250 national partners have already signed on to spread the message that
achieving a complete and accurate count is important in 2010.
- Census in Schools: Throughout April 2009, every school in
the country will receive a letter of interest encouraging principals and
teachers to sign on and participate in the K-12 Census in Schools program.
Schools will receive their Census in Schools instructional materials in the
Fall of 2009. Students will be able to experience the Census In Schools
program throughout the 2009-2010 school year.
