What: The next U.S. Census is in 2010. The census is a count of everyone residing in the United States.
When: You will receive your questionnaire in March 2010 either by U.S. mail or hand delivery.
Why: The U.S. Constitution requires a national census once every ten years to count the population and determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives.
How: Households should complete and mail back their questionnaires upon receipt. Census takers will visit households that do not return questionnaires to take a count in person.
