Every year more than $400 billion in federal funds are awarded to states and communities based on census data which total more than $3 trillion distributed over a 10 year period. And census data affects your voice in congress by determining how many seats each state will have in the U. S. House of
Representatives as well as the redistricting of the state legislatures, county and city commissions and even the local voting districts.
This year, the U. S. Census Bureau, Department of Commerce, will issue a call to action for every resident of our nation: "Be Counted!"
The Census Bureau protects information that identifies respondents or their households for 72 years and the questionnaire contains only a few simple questions and takes just a few minutes to answer and return by mail, no postage required.
Locally, the U. S. Census Bureau has stated that approximately 1,000 temporary jobs are available in paid positions in St. Johns County. Especially urged to apply are those who are bi-lingual. To apply for a position, click here.
Homeless persons and illegal immigrants are also required by law, to be counted. For the homeless, the contact point is St. Francis House, 70 Washington St.
The census counts everyone living in the United States, Washington, D. C., Puerto Rico, U. S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa. This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, both citizens and non-citizens.
The questionnaires was mailed or delivered to each household in March. April 1 is the designated Census Day and from April to July census takers will visit households that did not return a questionnaire by mail. By law, December the Census Bureau will deliver the population counts to President Obama for apportionment purposes and in March 2011, the Census Bureau is required to complete delivery of redistricting data to individual states.
Better Business Bureau offers the following advice:
If a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door:
They will have a badge, a Census Bureau canvas bag and a confidentiality notice. Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions. However, you should never invite anyone in your home that you don't know. To view the identification provided by the U. S. Census Bureau, click here.
Census workers are currently only knocking on doors to verify address information. Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S. Census. While the Census Bureau might ask for basic financial information, such as a salary range, it will not ask for Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers nor will employees solicit donations.
Eventually, Census workers may contact you by telephone, mail, or in person at home. However, they will not contact you by email, so be on the lookout for email scams impersonating the Census. Never click on a link or open any attachments in an email that are supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau.
St. Augustine Chief of Police Loran Lueders states that he wants all city residents and businesses to stay safe and if you have any questions or concerns about possible illegal activity relating to the Census or any other action call the SAPD at 825.1074.
