2010 Census Questionnaire Assistance Centers (QACs) have officially opened this week. Many nonprofits in Michigan have opened their doors to serve as a local QAC or Be Counted Center. If you have community members seeking assistance, please help them find a QAC. You can do so by going online to 2010census.gov and selecting “Questionnaire Assistance Center or Be Counted Center” from the home page. This will take you to the Take 10 map where you can enter your zip code to find the closest QACs and Be Counted Centers.
Questionnaire Assistance Centers provide in-person information and language assistance in completing your 2010 Census form. Be Counted forms also available at all locations.
Be Counted sites have Be Counted forms available for anyone who did not receive a 2010 Census form or believes they were missed on their household’s form. Be Counted forms are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Vietnamese.
Individuals can also use the Census Bureau’s Telephone Questionnaire Assistance:
