Census and Us

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — pprscribe @ 1:06 pm

Just a quick plug: When you receive your 2010 U.S. Census forms, fill them out and return them. At the Scribe house, we turned the whole experience into a civics lesson for our kids. They were in charge of interviewing me and their father: reading to us the questions and filling in the American Community Survey forms. My daughters not only learned about the census—why it is done, what the data are used for—but also learned a thing or two about me, their father, and our family during the course of their “interviews.”
