Lee County Schools Prepare for 2010 Census
Lee County Schools Prepare for 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 distribute Congressional seats to states, to distribute more than $400 billion in federal funds to local, state and tribal governments each year and to make decisions about what community services to provide. The 2010 Census questionnaire will be one of the shortest in history and consists of 10 questions, taking about 10 minutes to complete. Strict confidentiality laws protect the confidentiality of respondents and the information they provide.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises people to be cooperative, but cautious. A U.S. Census worker will have a badge, a handheld device, a Census Bureau canvas bag and a confidentiality notice.  Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions.  Census workers will never ask for Social Security numbers, bank account or credit card numbers nor will employees solicit donations.  You will never be contacted by email, so do not open any email that is supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau.
