United States Census 2010 - Library Help Center
Portage District Library will host a Census Help Center from March 19th through April 19th, 2010. Hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday 4-7 pm, Saturday 2-5 pm. If you would like assistance filling out the Census, the library is accommodating the U.S. Census Bureau by providing a Questionnaire Assistance Center, and they will be glad to help you.
The census population totals determine which states gain or lose representation in Congress. It also determines the amount of state and federal funding communities receive over the course of the decade. 2010 Census data will directly affect how more than $4 trillion is allocated to local and state governments over the next 10 years. The facts gathered in the census also help shape decisions for the rest of the decade about public health, neighborhood improvements, transportation, education, senior services and much more.
