Have You Turned In Your 2012 Census Form?

Posted on Date: Aug 26, 2013


All businesses rely on the U.S. government in some form or another, including franchises. The more accurate data the government has, the better decisions and allocations it can make when it allocates resources to small businesses.

In the fall of 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau sent out its five-year census survey to over four million businesses throughout the country. Those surveys were due Feb., 2013 and are now overdue. If you received a survey and did not fill it out, please do so now and turn it in. Your data will help the government gain a more accurate perspective of the needs of small businesses and franchises and your city, county and state.

Don’t worry about digging through your desk drawers if you don’t know where your survey is. You can just hop onto the U.S. Census Bureau’s website and take the survey online Right Here.

At the AAFD we strongly encourage all franchise owners to raise their voices and be heard. You can’t complain that the government never did anything to support your business if you don’t participate in the conversation!
