Special Census will begin on May 19, 2017

The City of Mascoutah is pleased to announce that the Special Census in the City of Mascoutah will begin on May 19, 2017.  Census takers will be visiting households in selected neighborhoods every day of the week, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to collect information from Mascoutah residents.  It is anticipated that the Special Census will take around four weeks to complete.
“We ask for your full cooperation in this effort.  The special census is extremely important...it affects all of us in the form of our share of taxes that we get back from the state,” said Mayor Daugherty.
Special Census enumerators will be contacting residents at their homes to conduct interviews.  All workers will be wearing a visible U.S. Census Bureau badge.  The enumerator will ask you five questions for each person living in your household, the interview should take about 10 minutes.  All information obtained during the interview will only be used for the purpose of the Special Census and is confidential.  Several attempts will be made to contact residents in their homes, but in the event that is not possible, census workers will place a telephone call to the home.
The purpose of the Special Census is to allow the City to capture state revenues that are based on per capita (population) distributions. 
Thank you in advance for participating in our Special Census.  By completing the questionnaire, you help everyone living in our community.
