FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MONDAY, MAY 11, 2015

Area Residents Urged to Be a Part of History, Participate in Closing Days of 2015 Census Test

Release Number CB15-83
Component ID: #ti1481622806

NOTE TO CORRESPONDENTS

May 31 is the last day for residents in Savannah, Ga., and its surrounding counties to be a part of history and participate in the 2015 Census Test. Residents can answer the brief questionnaire at <www.census.gov/2015>.

Savannah area residents have a unique opportunity to help taxpayers save up to $5 billion in 2020 Census operating costs by shaping what will be the most fundamentally redesigned census in U.S. history.

The area’s population density, demographic diversity and the mixed rates of Internet access led to its selection as the site to test various digital outreach methods for different population groups.

The following counties are involved in the 2015 Census Test:

  • Georgia — Appling, Bacon, Bryan, Bulloch, Candler, Chatham, Effingham, Evans, Jeff Davis, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, Montgomery, Screven, Tattnall, Toombs and Wayne.
  • South Carolina — Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper.

Savannah-area residents should complete their questionnaires before May 31 at <www.census.gov/2015>.

For more information about the test, visit http://www.census.gov/2015censustests.

Please contact the Census Bureau’s Public Information Office at 301-763-3030 to request an interview.
