POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Census 2010 preparation ramps up - January 5, 2010

Nick is proud to co-chair, with County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury, the Complete Count Committee for Census 2010. The Committee is working to ensure that every person in Oregon, and especially those in traditionally hard to count communities, is a part of the count - at stake is $400 billion in federal funding as well as the potential addition of a seat in the House of Representatives.

 

In 2000, writes Anne Saker in this morning's Oregonian, only two-thirds of households returned their surveys. This time around, the Census Bureau is using a much shorter form, just 10 questions. Keep an eye out for your form, arriving soon!
