The formula for success on the Census is simple: 10:10:10:10.  It takes 10 minutes to watch the video. There are 10 questions, which take 10 minutes to fill out, and which will determine for 10 years whether or not your State, City, or Neighborhood will get its fair share of federal funds.

PAKPAC requests all Pakistani Americans to fully participate and make sure that they and their loved ones are counted. I t is crucial for the Pakistani American community as one of the fastest growing and traditionally undercounted populations to be accurately counted. It will also indicate what is the total count of Pakistani Americans in USA, and in which states, towns they reside in. Anyone in the family can complete the Census form and it is required to have information on all people present in the household on the day the form is filled.
