2010 Census: Your Community's Participation Rate

Have you received your 2010 census form?  If you did, did you fill it out?  What about your neighbors?

Now you can track the participation rates of your community, county or state through the 2010 Participation Rates webpage at the home of the 2010 census. 

This website is a collaboration between the U.S. Census Bureau and Google.  I had trouble getting the site to work with just a zip code, so instead clicked on the state map, and then zoomed into the local community.

I was surprised to see the rate of participation in my community.  Right now it stands at 56%.  We have not received our form yet at my house.  Perhaps we'll receive a visit later in the year.
