Have you filled out your 2010 Census form and sent it back in? I did. Over a week ago.
I also got another 2010 Census form in the mail today, identicle to the first. I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with this new one.
There is a new map that shows how well different areas of the country are responding so far. It's a measure of what they call the "Mail Participation Rate," which is the percentage of forms mailed back by households that received them.
Today, nationally, the participation rate is at 52%. In Vermont participation is at 51%.
The map allows for searches by zipcode. Here's how the Brattleboro area compares at the beginning of April:
South of town, Guilford - 61%
West of Living Memorial Park - 59%
North of town, Dummerston - 55%
East of Living Memorial Park - 53%
