Hampton County is one of 17 counties in the Savannah/Coastal Empire and South Carolina Lowcountry that has been selected as a 2015 Census Test Site. The test taking place in our area will let people complete the survey online at any time, using desktop computers, laptops, cellphones, or tablets which eliminates the need to fill out papers and mail the form.
An accurate census count means that our community - and others in the nation - can receive the funding, services, and business support they deserve and need. Locally, businesses often use census data to help decide where to put a store, office, or plant. Communities can use information from the count to persuade companies to move to their region. Officials rely on the data to determine bus routes, school district boundaries, and community services. At the state and federal levels, governments use the data to decide how much money communities receive for things like building and maintaining schools.
Online registration is open for Notify Me service for texts or emails to remind you when the test begins - March 23
