2010 Census
The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, and takes place every 10 years. The data collected by the decennial census determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities.

The 2010 Census represented the most massive participation movement ever witnessed in our country. Approximately 72 percent of the households returned their census form by mail; the remaining households were counted by census workers walking neighborhoods throughout the United States. The data collected by Census Bureau is currently being processed and tabulated, with national and state population totals released by December 31, 2010.
