It is important for every District resident to participate in the 2010 Census. Taken every 10 years, the Census counts everyone residing in the District of Columbia and throughout the nation. This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, both citizens and non-citizens. The Census affects the allocation of billions of dollars in government funding as well as political representation. It is in our hands to ensure the District has a complete an accurate 2010 Census.
The 2010 Census is easy, safe and important. The Census questionnaire asks only a few questions and only takes a few minutes to complete. The Census Bureau does not release or share information that identifies individual respondents. The Census does not ask for one’s legal status or criminal history. The 2010 Census is safe and confidential.
