Stand Up and Be Counted

The month of March 2010 has been set for the Denver Census 2010 and you should stand up and be counted. Historically, every ten (10) years, the United States counts its people nationwide, including people of all ages, citizens and non-citizens, races, and ethnic groups. The bottom line is that the results of the Census are utilized to determine the needs of all U.S. communities.

Constitutionally protected and confidential personal information and data are gathered by respective Census Bureau or its representatives. This means your sensitive information and data are strictly protected by the U.S. Constitution from any accessibility of all kinds. Your answers to questionnaires are protected by the U.S. Constitution. The Census Bureau or its representatives are legally forbidden to disclose or share your sensitive personal information with IRS agency or Immigration department, or use your information against you in any form to garnish your salaries, collect alimony, child support, and delinquent taxes, or cease your welfare and services, or investigate your immigration status, arrest warrant and traffic violations.

Financial Implication of Census 2010 for Denver Community
The Federal Government pays $826 for each person residing in Denver, each year for ten (10) years (or $8,260 per 10 years) in Federal funds, if you’re counted. Historical data revealed that Denver community has lost $74 million since the 2000 Census because some Denver residents chose not to be counted. Each year, the Federal Government allocates roughly $435 billion to U.S. communities in federal funding and the amount of money allocation basis to each community is associated with the Census data collection.

Conservatively, approximately $435 billion in federal funding is allocated to communities in the U.S. each year and the Census data determines the amount of money given to each community. In the past, Census counts have provided many benefits to the citizens of Denver through funding for community colleges, K-12 school funding, health services, public library construction, senior services, student loans, road construction and maintenance, alcohol and drug abuse, head start, women, infants and children programs, children’s insurance programs, housing and community development, unemployment and more.
