Census director collects forms on Census Day
Census Director Robert Groves visited Washington's Ben's Chili Bowl on Thursday morning to help collect census forms from nearby residents. In the video above he explains what the agency is doing to promote participation and notes the nation's already high participation rate.
"We have been urging people to get their forms in by April 1, especially those that have pretty stable households," Groves said.
"To my delight, I'm happy to note that about 52 percent of the households in the country have already returned their forms, as of yesterday at 4:32, but who's counting?" he said.
Groves's boss, President Obama, did his part earlier this week by filling out his form.
