Today is your day! If you don’t mail back your census form, a census taker will visit your home to ensure that we accurately count each person in the country. It costs $0.42 for people to mail back their form, compared with $57 for census takers to visit each home. After the 2000 Census, we returned over $300 million in savings to the federal treasury because mail rates exceeded expectations. We’d all like a repeat in 2010.
