RESPONSE TO THE 2012 ECONOMIC CENSUS IS PAST DUE

The 2012 Economic Census, the U.S. Government's official five-year measure of American business and the economy, is entering its final days of data collection.

Many businesses have shared with the Census Bureau the challenges of responding with fewer resources. It has listened, and have provided time extensions and other considerations in allowing businesses additional time to respond. For businesses that received Economic Census forms but have not yet responded, it is very important to do so now. Keep in mind that the Economic Census is required by law.

In this economic climate, it is necessary to have the most accurate measure of our economy. Response to the Economic Census allows the Bureau to provide exactly that. Thank you very much for your participation.

To assist you, the Census Bureau is prepared to discuss your compliance via phone. Please call 877) 790-1876. Due to timing, it also encourages you to use electronic reporting available at: econhelp.census.gov. The Census Bureau looks forward to helping you respond to the Economic Census. Your response makes a difference.
