The 2010 US Census is coming in mid-March and The City of South Euclid residents need to be counted. This will ensure our community will receive its fair share of dollars for services that benefit all of us. For every resident not counted in the 2010 Census, our community will lose $1,200 per year in funds for critical services during the next 10 years (1). These are vital services for our children, seniors, families, and others.

When you receive the short Census questionnaire in the mail, you are encouraged to promptly complete and return the form to fulfill your responsibility. This is the best way to save taxpayer costs associated with follow- up by Census representatives. According to the US Census Bureau, about $85 million is saved for every one percentage point increase in the number of forms returned by mail or about $60-$70 per census form returned by mail.

If you should not receive a questionnaire or require assistance completing it, you may call 1-866-872-6868.

Your cooperation will help our City to be a leader in response rate and accuracy as tracked by the US Census Bureau.

Thank you for your support.
