 The Census Bureau wants you to get the 10 question survey back to them in the next week.  It takes about 10 minutes to fill out.  So far, it looks like a lot of people are putting it off.

We know this thanks to a new feature from Google Maps and Google Earth.  When surveys are returned, the Census alerts Google and Google maps the progress.   As of Wednesday, just 16% of the surveys have been sent in.

Zoom in to see how Rochester is doing.  Only 9% of the surveys from the city have been received.  Monroe County is at 13%.  Webster, Victor, Bergen, and Avon have made a decent showing so far.  But nothing like Lyons Falls, a village in Northern New York.  They're reporting 70%.

It is easy to find out exactly how your city, town, or village is doing and the map is updated every weekday.
