US Census LogoNorwalk~The one year countdown to the 2010 Census has begun, and the U.S. Census Bureau is looking to national, tribal, state and local officials, corporations and community leaders to ensure an accurate count.  With Census Day quickly approaching - April 1, 2010 - the Census Bureau has already launched a critical national effort that affects the apportionment of congressional seats, and how the federal government annually allocates more than $300 billion in federal funds to state, local and tribal governments.  The participation of community leaders, organizations and local governments can help make the 2010 Census the most accurate in Census history.  

The 2010 Census will have one of the shortest census questionnaires since the Census process began in the United States in 1790.  The 2010 Census will ask for name, gender, age, race, ethnicity, relationship and whether the householder owns or rents their home.  The ten questions will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and the answers will affect people's lives for the next ten years.  All personal information collected by the Census is protected by law and strictly confidential.
