Census Explained: 1940

The above video is titled “The 1940 Census: Introduction” was produced by the US Census Bureau and preserved and posted by the National Archives.

For a nearly 70 year old film, it does a good job of explaining why you should fill out your census form that holds up well today. Many of the basic facts about American demographics, number and kinds of American business and so on are from the Census Bureau. Those numbers are only accurate if people participate in the Census.

If you hesitate when you get your Census 2010 form next April, go back and watch this film.
