[ARCHIVED] Census 2010 Is Coming to Cedar Falls

The 2010 Census is approaching and the City of Cedar Falls is proud to partner with the U.S. Census Bureau to help achieve a complete and accurate count of our population. Our goal is to help individuals in our community and beyond to understand the importance of the census, and encourage people to complete and return their 2010 Census forms.

Census data are vital to our community. The data collected in the census directly affect how more than $400 billion in federal funding is distributed annually to state, local and tribal governments – including Cedar Falls. In fact, census data help guide local planning decisions, such as where to provide additional social services, build new roads, hospitals and schools, and where to locate job-training centers. For businesses, census data are critical to help companies make strategic and fiscally sound decisions that can spur and sustain economic development and growth.

Here's how you can help. We ask for your assistance in this important initiative. We encourage you to let your family, friends, neighbors, business associates, industry contacts and others know that:

· The census is easy. One of the shortest census forms in history, the 2010 Census form asks 10 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete.

· The census is important. Census data guide decisions that can help improve services to our community, including schools, hospitals, housing, roads and more.

· The census is safe. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with anyone, including other federal agencies and law enforcement entities.

Everyone needs to be counted. The 2010 Census questionaire will be mailed to every household on March 15, 2010. Once your receive your questionaire, please complete the form and mail it back to the Census Bureau without delay. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s confidential. A complete and accurate count is in our hands.
