So far the Rockville neighborhood with the highest rate is … Woodley Gardens!Today the national rate is 20% and I’m so pleased to look at the >interactive 2010 Census Map and see that all of Rockville is above the national average. Woodley Gardens is leading with a big 39%.
Have you filled out and returned your 2010 Census Questionaire yet? I did. It took about 5 minutes to carefully read everything and provide the information for my family of four.
Thanks to this wonderful piece by Temperance Blalock, I thought about future generations researching the Cotte and Griffiths families when I filled out the information. Remember the Census is completely confidential! The Census Bureau is not permitted to share your information with anyone, but after 72 years the data is released.
As it states in Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States, the Census is required by law:
The actual enumeration shall be made within three years after the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent term of 10 years, in such manner as they shall by Law direct.
If you have any questions, visit the Census site.
We all have to return our Census forms by April 1st. I hope to look at the interactive map and see that every neighborhood in Rockville is at a 100% participation rate. Census workers will come to your door if you don’t return it. Save everyone the time and money and do it today!
