Besides the Constitutional mandate to provide a basis for reapportioning seats in the House of Representatives, the census measures how well the Nation is doing, from the block level to the entire coun- try. Its finding are used in the private and public sectors to decide how billions of dollars will be spent an- nually. Planning for the 1980 census, which has gone on since the early seventies, reflects this heightened need for the most complete count ever taken, especially of minorities. In 90 percent of the Nation's households, people will be asked to take their own census, in effect, by an- swering the questionnaires and mailing them hack in postage free envelopes. Census takers will obtain the infor- mation from households that fail to mail back completed questionnaires as requested. The remaining 10 percent, which will receive instructions to hold the com- pleted questionnaires until census takers pick them up, are mostly in sparsely settled areas in the Western haft of the nation. In some cases, the census takers will ask additional questions. Census questions seek basic infor- mation about people--age, sex, oc- cupation, and the like--and about sub- jects such as housing, personal tran- sportation, and energy use. Most people will be asked to answer a basic census questionnaire which has 19 questions About one of five households, chosen randomly, will be asked to answer a longer version with 46 additional questions. Federal law requires everyone to an- swer the census; it also protects tho confidentiality of personal information. The only people who can see an in- dividual's replies are census em- ployees, who are sworn to secrecy un- der threat of a $5,000 fine and five-year prison term.
