The 2010 Census Portrait of America Road Tour launches TODAY, January 4th, from New York City’s Times Square and other major cities across the country, including Boston, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco and St. Louis. This national Road Tour will travel to more than 800 communities in the nation to encourage everyone to complete and return the census form this March. The Road Tour will inform participants about the 2010 Census and the positive impact their participation can have on their local communities. In addition, the 13-vehicle Road Tour will:
· Travel more than 150,000 miles across the country
· Participate in more than 800 events
· Reach an estimated 18 million people
· Encourage participants to share their stories, creating the 2010 Census Portrait of America project that will live on 2010census.gov
· Engage millions of viewers online through social media, including Twitter, Facebook and Flickr
The census is taken only once every ten years and has a direct impact on everyone in the country. Census data are used to apportion seats in Congress, and directly affect how more than $400 billion per year in federal funding is distributed to state, local and tribal governments. About $85 million is saved for every one percentage point increase in the number of forms mailed back as fewer census workers will be needed to make personal visits to homes that did not respond by mail.

Motown, home to iconic American music and cars, has become “No town.” New census numbers show one out of every four Detroit residents has left town. Detroit’s population hasn’t been this low since 1910. It has some asking, is there any hope for Detroit?
HANK WINCHESTER, WDIV REPORTER: “Here is the bottom line though right here now, this is horrible news for the city of Detroit.”
TOM WAIT, WXYZ REPORTER: “Over a million people have left the Motor City, the question is, have we hit bottom?”
ROD MELONI, WDIV REPORTER: “Well here’s the problem (points to vacant home), there’s so much of this to be found almost on every corner of the city and things have not rebounded.”
While many blame a decline in auto jobs and housing prices, others are calling that nonsense. The Michigan View asks, if that were true, why is the population of counties around Detroit- which were also hammered by auto job layoffs- increasing? The writer calls Detroit “America’s poster child” for “disastrous federal welfare policies.”
“What is driving down Detroit's numbers is a black middle class in full retreat to the suburbs - fleeing the high crime, high illiteracy dysfunction that two generations of fatherless inner city homes have bred.”
And with people fleeing the city, how will it recover? A Detroit Free Press writer says fewer people equals less tax revenue in a city that could really use the cash. But he says...
“Bigger is not necessarily better. Detroit can become an attractive and livable smaller city, with plenty of parks, green space and even small urban farms.”
And a writer for MLive says cities like Boston, Denver, and Washington DC are livable and functional with a population below 700,000 people- so why can’t Detroit be added to that list?
“Of course, a city’s population ranking is over-rated… declining population doesn’t mean Detroit is necessarily destined to be a rust-belt Palookaville.”
Others aren’t so optimistic. 24/7 Wall St. points out, there’s no way to rebuild the American auto industry in a way that will add hundreds of thousands of jobs.
“The federal government is too poor to help Detroit. It would cost tens of billions of dollars to aid the city… Detroit presents America with that rare problem which has no solutions.”
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says he thinks the census isn’t accurate and he’ll be asking for a recount.
