The U.S. Census Bureau is beginning its Census of Governments outreach and promotion effort and they need your help to increase awareness, participation, and response rates. The Census Bureau conducts a Census of Governments of all state and local government organization units every five years, for years ending in two and seven, as required by law under Title 13, U.S. Code, Section 161. The collection of these data will be part of a three-phase effort to document the size, structure, and finances of all state and local governments. Click here for flyer for more information.
Phase 1, Government Organization, will be underway shortly. Here are a few ways that you can help promote the Census of Governments:
- Invite us to participate in an upcoming meeting and/or conference.
- Post, publish, or email blast the attached flyer to your members.
- Include information about the Census of Governments in your newsletter.
