You can make history this academic
year by participating in the 2010 Census, and in turn, helping define
and improve the quality of life in our community and our nation.
Conducted every 10 years, the census is more than a population count.
Census data inform critical political and funding decisions on the
national, state and local level. One of the shortest in history, the
Census form only takes about 10 minutes to complete.
If you live off campus:
2010 Census forms will be delivered or mailed to your house or
apartment this March. All students living at the address are
considered one household, so only one form should be completed with
information about all the people living at that address. Mail the
completed form in the U.S. mail envelope provided.
ATTENTION OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS:
completed household Census form to
Census Day on Wed.,
March 31st from 12-3pm in between the Davis Center and
Library you will be entered into a prize raffle for
the Mayor' of Burlington's parking spot,
gift cards to City Market, and much more!! Stay tuned for more
Why the 2010 Census
Census data will provide state population
counts and determine
representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Every year, the
federal government distributes more than $400 billion to state, local
and tribal governments based on census data. Data also will guide local
decision-makers on where to build new schools, roads, hospitals and
develop community programs that affect quality of life.
Everyone in the United
States must be counted. This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic
groups, citizens and noncitizens. By law, the U.S. Census
Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including other
federal agencies and law enforcement entities
Watch for additional details in the
coming months or visit 2010census.gov

enhance neighborhood safety and value. This pilot project can serve as
a model for other streets.
