 The U.S. Constitution requires a population and housing count every 10 years.  This effort employs a workforce nationally of 1.4 million temporary employees and uses some of the most sophisticated technical and operational tools available to count every man, woman and child once and in the right place.  Census results determine the distribution of more than $400 billion in federal funds and are the basis of Congressional representation.  Census Day is April 1, 2010.  For more information, visit www.2010census.gov.
