The 2010 Census....Stand up and be counted!!

Time has rolled around again for our country's census.  This includes having one mailed to your home for you to fill out and mail back as well as census-takers coming to your door.  Which one would you prefer?  I would much more prefer filling it out and mailing it back.  One good thing about the 2010 Census it's offering jobs for the dismal economy.  The census is taken to find out the country's population which will allow for proper funding to go to these areas for programs.  This is all determined by the decrease or increase in the population of people who live in rural, suburban and urban areas.  This will allow for the proper funding for government programs where its needed. This is all done by answering ten questions on the census form. 

All the information collected will help determine congressional. state and voting districts. Race and sex can help determine funding for government programs such as health, education and housing services.

The 2010 US Census is a joke. There is so much waste and corruption. I personally know a Census worker. She is unemployed at the moment and needing some extra money to get by. The cenus job seemed like a great fit. She is finding the whole process is worse than the poorly managed marketing jobs serving samples at WalMart.   They attend trainings, then they are told how many hours they can work. Then they are told the work is not available. Then they are told just be ready to work …

The local census office invited us to a census party. Why is there a census party? Huge waste of tax payers money!

Wiki

The Twenty-third United States Census, known as Census 2010, will be the next national census in the United States. The census has been conducted every 10 years since 1790, as required by the United States Constitution, with the previous one completed in 2000. On January 25, 2010, Census Bureau Director Robert Groves personally kicked off the 2010 Census enumeration by counting World War II veteran Clifton Jackson, a resident of Noorvik, Alaska.
