1) On March 16, federal and local officials descended on Indiana University of Pennsylvania to remind residents about the decennial U.S. Census questionnaire that was arriving in mailboxes nationwide that week. Their message: Fill out and return the Census form based on where you reside on April 1. If that's on the IUP campus, then students should so indicate on the 10-question Census form.
One local official who reinforced this message is Jeff Raykes, chief planner for Indiana County's Office of Planning and Development. Raykes joined "Global Alert" in the WIUP-FM studio for the March 21 program segment on the local angle on the 2010 census.
