The decennial census is coming!  As required by the Constitution, the federal government conducts a census every ten years.  The 2010 census data will be used for Congressional reapportionment and the drawing of state legislative districts.  Just as importantly, the data collected by the 2010 Census will be used to allocate more than $300 billion in federal funds to states and localities. Also, census data about changes in your community are crucial to many planning decisions, such as where to provide services for the elderly, where to build new roads and schools, or where to locate job training centers.
