The U.S. Constitution requires a national census once every 10 years. Census forms will be mailed to every household in March 2010 and Census Day is April 1, 2010.
In Lincoln County, more than 42,000 housing units will receive the Census! The brief questionnaire takes about 10 minutes to complete, and asks for the name, gender, age, race, ethnicity and relationship to the householder, and whether the householder owns or rents their home. You should fill out your census form wherever you are on the day you receive it, regardless of where you live at other times of the year.
