Maryland Blogger: Be Counted, Gaithersburg!

Be Counted, Gaithersburg!

Be Counted, Gaithersburg!


As of July 27, our census self-response rate is 66.6% compared to a 73.2% final self-response rate in 2010. If 43 households per day in each of the census tracts in Gaithersburg fill out the census between now and July 31, we'll match what we did in 2010 (and you'll avoid having a census taker knock on your door to have you fill it out in person). The last day to be counted is October 31. Thank you to the 17,000 households that have already responded! Be counted now and fill out the census online. It's important, it's easy and it's safe.

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.

Census counting is vitally important for communities.  From it, services are identified and funding and especially political representation comes.

Hello Roy - I don't recall hearing/reading about our area current census update, that's interesting to read that percentage so far in Montgomery County.  It's an important task.  Good reminder.
