Officials Urge Hoosiers To Complete Census Forms

Last updated on Friday, April 2, 2010

(UNDATED) - The head of the Indiana Department of Administration is calling on all Hoosiers to complete and send in their 2010 United States Census form.

Commissioner Mark Everson says Indiana's participation rate is about 57 percent -- the ninth highest in the nation.

He says results from the form have a direct impact on every person living in our state because the federal government uses the data to determine how much funding we get over the next ten years. Local leaders also use the information for schools, public safety and other public policy decisions.
