Commerce Sec. Locke Speaks To Black Radio Network On Minority Census Response

LISTEN TO STATEMENT HERE

 

50 % OF US HOUSEHOLDS HAVE RETURNED THEIR CENSUS FORMS, BUT SOME AREAS OF THE COUNTRY LAGGING BEHIND 

US Census Bureau Urges All Americans to Do Their Part 


BACKGROUND: 
Just weeks after about 134 million questionnaires were delivered to homes across the country, more than half of US households have already mailed back their forms; however, some areas are lagging behind the rest of the country in mailing back their 2010 Census forms.   The US Census Bureau would like to remind all Americans that there is still time to fill out and mail back the census questionnaire. 

Every household that fails to send back their census form by mail must be visited by a census taker starting in May — at a significant taxpayer cost. The easiest and best way to be counted in the census is to fill out and return your form by mail.  The Census Bureau will mail a second round of questionnaires out to about 40 million housing units in early April. These questionnaires will give households that have not yet mailed back their census form a second chance to fill it out and mail it back. This should increase mail response rates and decrease expensive follow-up costs.   



MORE ABOUT GARY LOCKE: 
Gary Locke was appointed by President Obama as the 36th Secretary of Commerce and sworn into office on March 26, 2009. 

At the Department of Commerce, Locke is charged with helping implement President Obama’s ambitious agenda to turn around the economy and put people back to work. 

As the first Chinese-American to hold this post in a president’s cabinet, Locke has a distinctly American story. His grandfather emigrated from China to Washington state, initially finding employment as a servant, working in exchange for English lessons. Locke’s father, also born in China, was a small business owner, operating a grocery store where Locke worked while receiving his education from Seattle’s public school system. His strong work ethic and determination eventually took him to the highest office in the state of Washington.
