I highly encourage everyone to fill out their census forms and mail them in! The census is used to determine the proper allocation of federal funding, as well as how many members of the House of Representatives each state is allowed. I just received a letter informing me that our census survey will be mailed out in the next week or so, and I assume it is similar throughout the country. Make sure to take the time to fill out your survey and mail it in!
The census is not only beneficial and important to us today, but also to our posterity. The census is sealed for 72 years, after which time it is released to the public. For family history and research, the census can provide crucial information on your ancestors, and will do so likewise for your children and grandchildren when they want to learn more about you.
If you would like to share with your readers, please post this video on your blog and tell them how important this is!
Thank you Business2Blogger, and Jesse Bouman at Wpromote for giving me this chance to share about the census.
Disclaimer: Though I am receiving compensation for this post, I do feel that the census is very important and am giving my honest opinion on the matter.
