Watch for Your Census Form this Month and Be a Part of History!
The 2010 Census form will be delivered or mailed to households across the United States in March, and you can make history by filling out and returning your census form as soon as it arrives. You are encouraged to watch for your census form and respond immediately by mailing it back. 

Every person living in the United States must be counted in the 2010 Census – including people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, citizens and noncitizens. Your participation is vital and helps to provide a new portrait of America – illustrating our nation’s growing and changing population and demographics.

2010 Census: Why It’s Important

  • By completing and returning your census form you are performing an important civic duty while helping to better define the future – for you, your community and our country.
  • Every year, the federal government distributes more than $400 billion to tribal, state, and local governments based on census data.
  • Census data guide local planning decisions, including where to provide additional social services, establish child-care and senior centers, and build new roads, hospitals, schools and job training, and community centers.
  • Census data are used to reapportion congressional seats to states and assure proper district representation.
  • Many businesses, social service and non-profit organizations use census data to make critical decisions that affect communities everywhere.

Easy. Important. Safe.
Participating in the census is easy, important and safe. One of the shortest census forms in history, the 2010 Census form takes about 10 minutes to complete. By law, the U.S. Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including other federal agencies and law enforcement entities. All Census Bureau employees take an oath of nondisclosure and are sworn for life to protect the confidentiality of the data. The penalty for unlawful disclosure is a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to five years, or both.

JCPL is supporting Jefferson County government by encouraging your participation in 2010. Look for your 2010 Census form in March and return it upon receipt. Join us in helping to make our community a brighter place by participating in the 2010 Census.
