When will the 2010 U.S. Census data be available?

The United States is taking part in Census 2010

This year every household in the United States received a short questionnaire, in mid-March, asking for the name, sex, age, date of birth, race, ethnicity, relationship to head-of-household, and housing tenure of each resident living in the United States. Participation is mandatory and your personal information is protected by federal law.

An accurate count is important to the U.S. Census Bureau because the data is used to distribute congressional seats to states, define legislature districts, school district assignment areas and other important functional areas of government. It is also used to decide which community services to provide and to help distribute $300 billion in federal funds to local, state and tribal governments each year.

The Census Bureau must count everyone and submit state population totals to the U.S. President by December 31, 2010. Data from the census will be released on a flow basis from April 2011 through September 2013.
