Census deadline looms as more counties exceed 2000 rates

Press Release

MONTGOMERY, AL— Time is running out for Alabama residents missing their 2010 Census forms to get replacement forms mailed to their homes.

Thursday, April 22 is the last day that U.S. Census Bureau representatives will mail forms to those requesting them. Residents can still be counted beyond that date by calling 1-866-872-6868 and providing their information over the telephone. Households that do not respond to the 2010 Census will be visited by a Census Bureau employee after May 1.

Alabama's overall participation rate continues to climb and has surpassed the state's 2000 rate of 66 percent. As of late Wednesday, Alabama's 2010 rate was 69 percent.

Fifty-one Alabama counties have exceeded their 2000 participation rates, and two counties (Mobile and Pike) have met their previous rates.
