Tracking the 2010 Census

Today is the deadline to return your 2010 Census survey form, according to the United States Census Bureau.

It’s not a strict deadline, but if you still haven’t returned your filled-in questionnaire, Census employees hired locally will begin to communicate with you in order to get the information back. This information is taken very seriously.

The data collected will be used to tabulate future seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, community funding and an array of other things.

The Census Web site has a tool to track participation so far, where people can see the number of returns within the nation, their own state, or (in the near future) their communities. The national average, so far, is 52 percent. (Time as of these screen shots, the number moved up to 54 percent near 1 p.m.)

Here’s a snapshot from earlier today of how we’re fairing at a state and county level.

It’s a pretty cool tool.

More Census information is avaliable at the California Twitter page for the Census where it was just recently tweeted “19 Million Down … 19 million to go. Cmon California let’s move the dial.”

You can track more of the progress of Census submissions on the official 2010 Census Web site.
