2010 census forms to be mailed out in March

The 2010 U.S. Census has been estimated to find more than 309 million people living in the United States. In the last census taken in 2000, the count in Oliver County was at 2,065 in 903 housing units. But how many are living in Oliver County today? That is the big question.

Oliver County residents need to stand up and be counted when census questionnaires make the rounds to each known household either by mail or by a census worker. Each resident counted means $1,000 per year in funding to the county. That’s $10,000 a person over 10 years.
