Big Day Today

Today marks a rather important day for us at the Census Bureau. The first set of advance letters, mailed to a subset of the Update/Leave households should be delivered today by the US Postal Service throughout the country. We expect that there will be about 9.9 million letters received by households in the update/leave areas.

You’ll remember that these update/leave areas are ones where starting March 1, a census staff member will drop off a paper census form in a plastic bag at each housing unit, after updating our list of housing units.

This decade we’re doing this more than usual in the Gulf Coast areas affected by hurricanes.
