Carter: If you did not receive a census form

From the U.S. Census Bureau

Didn't get a 2010 Census form? It's not too late to be counted!! You can call our Questionnaire Assistance line at 1-866-872-6868 and give your answers over the phone or request a form be sent to where you live so you can mail it back in time to avoid a census taker coming to your door. Don't be left out of the count for your community.

You can also visit the "Be Counted" area of our website to locate a Questionnaire Assistance Center in your community where you can pick up a form through April 19.

Three Days Left to Mail Back 2010 Census Forms

Residents who need a form are encouraged to visit “Be Counted” sites

Yesterday marked the four-day countdown for residents across America to mail back their 2010 Census questionnaires. Households that return their forms after Friday, April 16, may still be visited by census workers, who begin going door-to-door to collect census responses on May 1.

Residents are encouraged to promptly mail back their forms, but for those who have lost or did not receive a census form in the mail, there is help available. Households can pick up a Be Counted form at nearly 39,000 community locations nationwide. These replacement forms are available in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Russian. To find a Be Counted site, visit (see "Need Help with Your Form") or search the Take 10 map at

“Nationwide, about 66% percent of households have mailed back their census forms. In 2000, the mail participation rate was 72 percent,” U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves said. “Residents who fail to mail back their forms by April 16 may be visited by a census worker in May.”


The 2010 Census is a count of everyone living in the United States and is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. Census data are used to apportion congressional seats to states, to distribute more than $400 billion in federal funds to tribal, state and local governments each year and to make decisions about what community services to provide. The 2010 Census form is one of the shortest in U.S. history, consisting of 10 questions, taking about 10 minutes to complete. Strict confidentiality laws protect the respondents and the information they provide.
