Have you gotten your Census form yet?
Forms, asking for your household’s basic demographic data, should begin arriving in mailboxes across Houston this week. Completed questionnaires should be mailed back to the government by April 1.
Sound easy? It is, unless you don’t send in the data, which is requested once every 10 years. U.S. Census Bureau workers, known as enumerators, will begin going door to door next month to collect information from homes that didn’t return the forms.
I got mine Monday, and it’s already in the mail. It was easy to fill out – it took maybe five minutes – and there’s an awful lot riding on it. Please get it done, and tell anyone you know who needs to be told to get theirs done as well. And for crying out loud, please pay no attention to crazy people and the dumb things they have to say about the Census. See here and here for more. Thanks.
