Harris County Forges One Last Push For Census Forms With Census Blitz Day

April 9, 2010

The U.S. Census Bureau has deemed April 10 as Census Blitz Day, and Harris County is taking part in a full line-up of community events to forge one last push for residents to complete and mail back their Census questionnaires.  

“This weekend is Harris County’s chance to create a surge in our current Census response rate,” said County Judge Ed Emmett.  “We will be on the ground at city celebrations, chili cook-offs, soccer tournaments and more to ensure that our residents understand the importance of the Census and in turn, mail back their forms.”

Mid-April marks the deadline for mailing back Census questionnaires. In May, Census workers will begin going door-to-door to collect information from those households that did not return their forms via mail.
