Natchitoches; Natchitoches Parish off to a poor start in Census 2010

leave a comment »

For Census 2010, “Its in your hands” is the slogan of choice.

In Natchitoches Parish, unfortunately, the census forms are reamining in our hands instead of being mailed in by the April 1 deadline. 

According to several estimates provided by state and federal governments, the cost of collecting Census 2010 information from individual households explodes from $.42 for a stamp to as much as $60 per person for the information to be collected by the door-to-door method (read here at the Christian Science Monitor).

Natchitoches, as of March 31, has a response rate of 42%, 6% below the state’s average and 12% below the national average.  Only Texas and New Mexico have lower response rates thus far nationally.
