2010 Census

The countdown to Census Day is underway!
With one of the shortest questionnaires in history, the 2010 Census will take only about 10 minutes for the average household to complete.
The census population totals determine which states gain or lose representation in Congress. It also determines the amount of state and federal funding communities receive over the course of the decade. 2010 Census data will directly affect how more than $4 trillion is allocated to local, state and tribal governments over the next 10 years. In order for this funding allocation to be accomplished fairly and accurately, every person living in the United States must be counted on April 1, 2010. The facts gathered in the census also help shape decisions for the rest of the decade about public health, neighborhood improvements, transportation, education, senior services and much more.
All responses are used for statistical purposes only, and all are strictly confidential. The U.S. Census Bureau does not ask about the legal status of respondents in any of its surveys and census programs. Language guides in 59 languages, including Ukrainian, will be available on request.
