Important to take part in 2010 Census
The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office has received several calls from concerned residents who have not yet received their 2010 Census form.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann encourages all Mississippians to make sure they are counted.
“Taking part in the 2010 Census is one of the most important things you can do this year,” Hosemann said. “We need to make sure Mississippi receives its fair share of federal funding by completing the census.”
According to the Census Bureau, the 2010 Census will help communities receive more than $400 billion dollars each year in federal funding.
“Currently, approximately 67 percent of Mississippians have filled out their census forms, compared to 72 percent nationally,” Hosemann said. “We want to make sure every Mississippian is counted.”
If you have not received or misplaced your 2010 Census form, there is still time to ensure you are counted by calling the Census Bureau toll free at 1 (866) 872-6868.
For more information, you may visit the Census Bureau website at www.census.gov or the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ms.gov.
