Pflugerville Census 2010 return rate worse than 2000

I should have posted a link to this February 8th PfCONA video presentation on Census 2010 here earlier (see it below.) A link was put on the PfCONA and City of Pflugerville web sites. I just forgot about it.

Are you one of the 27% of Pflugerville’s residents who forgot to return their census form? According to the Capitol Area Council of Government’s census blog Plfugerville’s 73% return rate was better than the Travis County average of 70% as of the end of April, however Pflugerville’s 2010 participation is 4% lower than the 2000 rate.

Official census employees will be visiting homes who did not return a form during May and June in an attempt to improve Pflugerville’s return rate. State and federal government funding is allocated on the basis of census counts so inaccurate data has the potential to cost us our fair share of money for important civic projects.

There is still time get the Census 2010 form and be counted. Please call the Census Telephone Questionnaire Assistance Center at 1-866-872-6868.
