L.A. City Hall rally kicks off 2010 census

A rally is scheduled this morning outside City Hall in downtown Los Angeles to kick off the 2010 census.

City Council members and about 500 census employees are expected to join at about 9:30 a.m. to mark the beginning of “field operations” for the upcoming count.

“During this operation, Census Bureau workers will canvass all known streets and roads, identify every living quarter where people could potentially live, and verify more than 145 million addresses,” according to a news release from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Census workers will first use hand-held GPS devices to update an address list so they can accurately mail 2010 census forms.
