10 minutes, 10 questions. This is nowhere as "intrusive" as all the questions from years past. 

How it's going as of July 20. See chart below. We're still behind (except San Geronimo Valley!). Federal, state & county funding is based on population count and the more census responses, the more accurate West Marin’s data will be to support disaster planning and recovery for the next ten years, in addition to the social services funding we usually read about. It takes a few minutes online.

Door-knock census taking begins early August if nothing is received:
