NEWARK, NJ:  Archbishop John J. Myers will urge Catholic residents in his diocese to fill out and mail back their 2010 Census forms.  Encompassing Bergen, Essex, Union and Hudson counties in northeastern New Jersey, this diocese is the geographically smallest in the United States, but it is also one of the busiest, most populous and most diverse.  On Sundays, mass is celebrated in 15 different languages across the archdiocese.  “Be not afraid: There is no need to fear this important process of counting the population,” says Myers.

 

Census representatives will join the archbishop and will answer questions about the 2010 Census.

 

 

 

WHEN:    Wednesday, March 24, 2010   10:00am 

 

WHERE: Archdiocese Auditorium

About the 2010 Census 

The 2010 Census is a count of everyone living in the United States and is mandated by the U.S. Constitution to be conducted every 10 years. Census data are used to apportion congressional seats to states; to distribute more than $400 billion in federal funds to local, state, and tribal governments each year; and to make decisions about what community services to provide. The 2010 Census form will be one of the shortest in U.S. history and consists of just 10 questions, taking about 10 minutes to complete. Strict confidentiality laws protect the respondents and the information they provide.
