Count yourself in. It’s important!

Do you know that it’s very important that you be counted here at SUNY Geneseo? It’s true! Even if you’ve been included in the census at home with your parents, it’s extremely important that you ALSO fill out the census forms here at school.

Why is it so important to participate in the census? Because Geneseo students reside in Geneseo, Livingston County, NY the majority of the year, like all other residents of Geneseo they utilize Livingston County resources. Accurate census data allow local, state, and federal government agencies to plan budgets and make allocations to serve everyone who lives in a particular area. Residence Life has a whole page explaining the details here and there’s a Facebook page for you to get all the latest updates!

If you’re looking for more information, the “Census Bureau Supplies Numbers America Needs” video explains how communities benefit from Census Bureau data collection efforts. Testimonials describe the importance of a complete count and why the 2010 Census will be the most important count in our nation’s history. So make sure you stand up and get counted!
