Census takers will come calling this month
With $13,000 per person in federal funding on the line, the Minnesota 2010 Census organizers are gearing up for next month's Census distribution.
The Census is nothing new -- it's been around since 1790, and is taken every 10 years. But in Minnesota, this year's Census is particularly important. The results determine how much aid the state receives from the federal government, but there are also some political implications.
