Here is some important information about the 2010 Census from Virginia Jimenez who works for the US Census Bureau:

  1. USC’s Census tract currently has a very low response rate (~30%, compared to 64% nationwide). Since the Census determines funding for the local community and representation in Congress, it is essential that all USC students be counted.
  2. College students—including international students and other non-US citizens—should fill out and return a Census form based on where they live while at USC (i.e., not where their parents live). Students who live in the same apartment, house, etc., can fill out 1 form per unit.
  3. Students who live in on-campus housing will be counted this week (April 12-16). Resident Advisors will be working with Census Bureau officials to distribute and collect forms.
  4. Students and other residents who live in non-USC housing should have already received a survey. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A FORM, you can pick one up from Leavey Library, which has a Census Bureau representative near the circulation desk on Tu, Th and Sat from 2:00-6:00pm. Or you can call the Census Bureau at 1-866-872-6868 for additional info in English (see http://2010.census.gov/2010census/contact/index.php for other languages).
  5. For more information about the 2010 Census, please visit 2010.census.gov..

If you haven’t already returned your Census survey, please take a moment to do so. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s important!
