Oxford Census 2010 in Progress

Census 2010 available at Oxford City Hall

Oxford residents are checking their mailboxes and making their way to the Oxford City Hall to pick up their 2010 Census forms.  This survey is filed out once every 10 years and affects the numbers of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The information the census collects also helps the state to determine how more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding is spent each year.

According to C.N. Le, a professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, “an accurate count of the U.S. population forms the basis for many important but often overlooked political, economic, and social decisions that are made that end up affecting our daily lives.”

Residents who do not receive their Census 2010 forms in the mail can head to Oxford City Hall to pick up a copy.  It is important that every resident accurately fill out a census form.

Oxford Census Enumerator Jace Ponder said, “The census is very important in receiving an accurate number of the local  residents in Oxford.”

Oxford officials are doing their part by hanging banners around town and making forms accessible to the public.  The Census 2010 deadline is Friday, April 16.
