Many Ohioans have just received a letter from the U.S. Census office, reminding them that the ten-year census is just around the corner. For a region facing a population decline, the stakes are high: some cities may see their numbers fall below the threshold for certain kinds of federal funding. And the final tally will determine not only the number of districts Ohio gets in the next Congress, but also the amount of money every county gets for providing human services. Wednesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation about what's at stake in the coming census.

why was i sent a card telling me they were going to send me a form? why the expense? just send the form.
assurances aside...from a privacy perspective the Constitution only requires that the citizens be counted every 10 years; by what law does the Census believe it can compel people to reveal personal information they do not wish to reveal and further to fine folks if they do not? Thanks
