The 2010 Census - a count of everyone living in the United States - is fast approaching! Census questionnaires will be mailed or delivered to residential addresses in March 2010, and to on-campus housing in April and May 2010.
College students living away from home should not be counted on their parents' questionnaires. People should be counted where they live and sleep most of the year, so students living in on-campus housing will receive their questionnaires there.
Required by the U.S. Constitution once every 10 years, the decennial census is a snapshot of everyone residing in the United States, regardless of age, race, or citizenship. Your participation is vital to ensure a complete and accurate count for your community in 2010.
