and for preparing whole Korean community for the next ten years.

  

Census is not only counting on US citizens, it is counting on everyone living in US.

  

Taxes will increase if you do not participate in Census.

Based on figures from New York, during 2000 Census, only 62% participated which classified New York as the state with the lowest participation in the Census. Due to this, New York City did not receive the support necessary from the federal government which led to direct increases in taxes, with clear examples of this in 2010 in the form of multiple MTA tax increases. 

  

If either of your parents are Korean, then you can chose your ethnicity as Korean along with your other ethnicity.

All applicants which have roots from Korean lineage, despite their other ethnicity, should choose Korean on the Census questionnaire, along with their other ethnicities to ensure full representation.
