The Iranian Studies Group has joined the U.S. Census Bureau’s Partnership Program in order to promote the Census in the Iranian/Persian Community.

In 2010, the U.S. census will define different dimensions of the American nation. Taken every 10 years, the census affects political representation and directs the allocation of billions of dollars in government funding. As a 2010 Census partner, organizations can educate their community about the importance of participating in this historic event and help ensure no one is left uncounted.
