City Of Jersey City 2010 Census
What Is The Census?
Our Nation's Constitution mandates that the entire population be counted every 10 years, determining how Jersey City will be represented in Congress, in the New Jersey General Assembly and in the City Council. I urge all residents to answer the Census questionnaire on April 1, 2010. An accurate count of Jersey City's population will result in our city receiving its fair share of Federal funding for many programs and projects - such as education, infrastructure and health care - which are vital to our continued growth, revitalization and economic stability. The future is in our hands, Jersey City! Get counted!
Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy
Why Everyone Should Get Counted
An accurate count of Jersey City's population will determine not only how its legislative districts are drawn, but also what portion of Federal money the City will receive for programs and projects which benefit you - residents and your families.
It's CENSUS DAY, APRIL 1, 2010, and I DIDN'T Get A FormI What Should I Do?
Don't worry. According to the US Census Bureau, if you haven't received your form by April 12, 2010, you can either contact one of their 2010 Census Toll Free Help Lines or you can find your Be Counted or Questionnaire Center.
