Statement from Borough President Diaz re: Low 2010 Census return rate
“I am disturbed by media reports indicating that, so far, only six percent of Bronx residents have returned the 2010 Census questionnaire. I cannot stress this enough, if we do not count, we will miss out. It’s only ten questions, and it takes only ten minutes. The census results play a major role in deciding how much funding is made available to programs in our borough. Bronxites, please fill out the form and send it back before April 1. It’s our responsibility, stand up and be counted!,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
