There’s still time…so fill out and mail back your census form TODAY!
Posted 04 - 15 - 2010


TWO DAYS LEFT AMERICA





After the 2000 Census, the Census Bureau was able to return $305 million in savings to the federal Treasury because mail rates exceeded expectations — a move the Census Bureau would like to repeat in 2010...




  • Mail back your 2010 Census form and help save taxpayer money:


    • For every 1 percent increase in the national participation rate by mail, the Census Bureau can save taxpayers $85 million by not having to send census takers door to door to households that failed to return their census forms.



    • If every household in the United States completed and mailed back their census form, taxpayers could reduce the cost of taking the census by $1.5 billion. It costs $.42 for people to mail back their form, compared to $57 for census takers to visit each home.

    • The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce, 2516 North St., and the Nacogdoches Public Library, 1112 North St., are both 2010 Census Questionnaire Assistance Centers.



      Now until April 19, Monday through Friday, Census representative Ramona Kellam, pictured above, is available to answer questions at the chamber, 9 a.m. - noon, and at the library, 1 - 4 p.m.


      2010 Census forms are available in several languages at both locations and are available to be picked up during the businesses' normal working hours. Call 936-560-5533 for more information.
