You can also download our previous webinar on filling out the census form.

In addition, you can download the audio portion of the presentation as a MP3. Or you can view the presentation online.

We mentioned several other resources yesterday.

Websites: - our website for nonprofits about the 2010 Census. - the official US Census Bureau 2010 Census website, which boasts an enourmous number of materials including the in language assistance guides (scroll down the page) we mentioned during the webinar. - this site is an amazing resource for information from the Census about your neighborhood, including detailed information on hard to count factors. This site will also report in mailback response rates. We held an entire webinar recently on how to use this site. View the presentation online.

Please note that the Questionnaire Assistance Center finder site is not yet available.

The Census Form:
Those of you who would like to download a sample of the Census form can do so on our site or on the official Census site.

Don't forget that the real forms will begin to arrive in the mail in mid March! And that the Census would like people to return the form by April 1st (although it will continue to accept forms until mid April).
