Monday Musings - Be counted!

April 1, 2010, is "Census Day". 1790 was the first year the US census was taken in the US via horseback and counted 3.9 million people. Jump ahead to the last census taken in 2000 which accounted for more than 281 million Americans. The US census is mandated by the US Constitution and is the leading source of data about America's people and the economy. All census forms were mailed mid-March so take the 10 minutes to fill out yours (I filled out mine and it took 5 minutes). Click on the hand logo above to be taken to a fact sheet entitled "Be counted in 2010" and read how you can make a difference in our greater USA community!
