Accurate census data important for school funding, loan programs

University officials are encouraging students as well as faculty and staff to participate in the 2010 U.S. Census.

Data from the census—a count mandated by the U.S. Constitution of everyone living in the United States—guide the distribution of more than $400 billion in federal funds to local, state, and tribal governments each year. They’re also used to determine Congressional apportionment and to help guide planning decisions, such as the placement of schools, hospitals, transportation, and business and industrial development.

Census data affect school budgets, specifically distribution of Title I and special education funding and college tuition grant and loan programs, an important consideration for many families.

Remind your student to complete and return the census form that they will receive at their residence in Iowa City in the next couple of months. The questionnaire will be one of the shortest in history, consisting of 10 questions and taking about 10 minutes to complete. You do not need to include your student on the census form you receive at your home address. Your student should be included in the count of Iowa City residents.
