The following is a press release from the City of Sulphur:
Mayor Chris Duncan would like to remind the citizens of Sulphur that the deadline for the mail participation process of the 2010 Census is Friday, April 16, 2010. The Census Bureau has announced that the national Mail Participation Rate is now at 67 percent.
Currently, the Mail Participation Rate for the State of Louisiana is 51% - 60%.
Mayor Duncan encourages those who have not mailed their forms to please do so. If 2010 Census forms are not mailed by Friday, it is likely that a census taker will visit homes in Sulphur to ensure that we are accurately counted.
