The 2010 Census count got its official kickoff for the local area yesterday in Rock Hill. There was a ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with several officials, including U.S. Rep. John Spratt, D-5. The Rock Hill office is the district’s base for 11 South Carolina counties, including Lancaster.
The U.S. Constitution requires that a census be taken every 10 years. While there has always been a big effort to get to get an accurate census count, there is a major effort to make sure everyone is accounted for in the 2010 count.
