2010 Census: Florida, Approaches Its 2000 Mail Participation Rate

Census Director says: “Fill Out Your Form and Mail it Back Today!”

     As of Thursday, April 15, Florida is just two percentage point away from matching the mail participation rate it achieved in the 2000 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau announced today. New rates released today show that 67 percent of Floridians have mailed back their forms so far, compared with 69 percent in 2000. The nation as a whole — at 68 percent — is still four percentage points away from matching the mail response rate achieved in 2000 (72 percent).

 

THURSDAY, April 15 (Tax Day)

 There’s still time…so fill out and mail back your census form TODAY!

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.

 

2010 Census: Florida, Approaches Its 2000 Mail Participation Rate

Census Director says: “Fill Out Your Form and Mail it Back Today!”

     As of Thursday, April 15, Florida is just two percentage point away from matching the mail participation rate it achieved in the 2000 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau announced today. New rates released today show that 67 percent of Floridians have mailed back their forms so far, compared with 69 percent in 2000. The nation as a whole — at 68 percent — is still four percentage points away from matching the mail response rate achieved in 2000 (72 percent).

     “We’re asking all Floridians who’ve received a census form to fill it out and mail it back today,” said U.S. Census Bureau director Robert Groves. “Your actions can save taxpayers a significant sum of money because mailing the form back is much easier and less expensive than having a census worker come to your door to complete the form with you.”

     The U.S. Census Bureau is emphasizing the Friday, April 16, mail deadline because forms put in the mail by tomorrow will likely be received and processed in time to delete those households from the list of addresses it will visit starting May 1. Households that normally pick up their mail from a post office box are already slated for follow-up in May from census workers.

     If successful, Florida can join North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee on the list of states that have met or surpassed their 2000 mail-back participation rate.

     The rates for all states, counties, places, towns and townships are updated each afternoon through April 23 at 4:00 p.m. on the Take 10 Challenge Map (http://2010.census.gov/2010census/take10map/). A final rate will be announced May 3.

ABOUT THE 2010 CENSUS

     The 2010 Census is a count of everyone living in the United States and is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. Census data are used to apportion congressional seats to states, to distribute more than $400 billion in federal funds to tribal, state and local governments each year and to make decisions about what community services to provide. The 2010 Census form is one of the shortest in U.S. history, consisting of 10 questions, taking about 10 minutes to complete. Strict confidentiality laws protect the respondents and the information they provide. 

 

Help Your Community Get Its Fair Share
Only 6 Days Left To Mail Back Your Census Form!


You must stand up and be counted if your community is to get it's fair share of over $400 billion....

When you fill out and mail back your census form, you’re making a statement about what resources your community needs going forward.

Accurate data reflecting changes in your community are crucial in apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and deciding how more than $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools.

That's more than $4 trillion over a 10-year period for things like new roads and schools, and services like job training centers.
