2010 Census

It's that time again. The U.S. Census Bureau is about to begin its Constitutionally-mandated count of everyone who resides in the United States. While their web site provides plenty of information about the census process, here are some highlights:

  • March, 2010: Census forms will be mailed or delivered to American households.
  • April 1, 2010: National Census Day - if your forms are not returned by that date, you will probably be visited by a census taker. Census takers, who will be working to collect data between April and July of 2010, will not come to your home if you've mailed in your census questionnaire.
  • Be sure to check out this information about what to expect and how to verify the identity of a census worker.
  • If you're concerned about the security of the information you report, be sure to read Protecting Your Personal Information.

Ms. Stephenson was a member of the library faculty who made provisions in her will for a scholarship for undergraduate students at SRU. Black female students receive priority consideration--all full-time students, however, are welcome to apply. Full details are available with the applications.
