Officials hope NC will improve response rate for Census 2010
By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — Every decade, the United States Census Bureau sends out questionnaires to get a national headcount, and every decade more than one-quarter of the recipients toss them in the trash. At least, that was the case in 1990 and 2000, when the average response rate to the census was 65 percent and 67 percent, respectively. Both times, North Carolina came in a few percentage points lower than the national average. But local officials are hoping that 2010 will be different.
