2010 United States Census
The 2010 United States Census is the twenty-third and most recent United States national census. National Census Day, the reference day used for the census, was April 1, 2010; the census was taken via mail-in citizen self-reporting, with enumerators serving to spot-check randomly selected neighborhoods and communities. As part of a drive to increase the count's accuracy, 635,000 temporary enumerators were hired; the population of the United States was counted as 308,745,538, a 9.7% increase from the 2000 Census. This was the first census in which all states recorded a population of over half a million, as well as the first in which all 100 largest cities recorded populations of over 200,000; as required by the United States Constitution, the U. S. census has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. The 2000 U. S. Census was the previous census completed. Participation in the U. S. Census is required by law in Title 13 of the United States Code. On January 25, 2010, Census Bureau Director Robert Groves inaugurated the 2010 Census enumeration by counting World War II veteran Clifton Jackson, a resident of Noorvik, Alaska.
More than 120 million census forms were delivered by the U. S. Post Office beginning March 15, 2010; the number of forms mailed out or hand-delivered by the Census Bureau was 134 million on April 1, 2010. Although the questionnaire used April 1, 2010 as the reference date as to where a person was living, an insert dated March 15, 2010 included the following printed in bold type: "Please complete and mail back the enclosed census form today." The 2010 Census national mail participation rate was 74%. From April through July 2010, census takers visited households that did not return a form, an operation called "non-response follow-up". In December 2010, the U. S. Census Bureau delivered population information to the U. S. President for apportionment, in March 2011, complete redistricting data was delivered to states. Identifiable information will be available in 2082; the Census Bureau did not use a long form for the 2010 Census. In several previous censuses, one in six households received this long form, which asked for detailed social and economic information.
The 2010 Census used only a short form asking ten basic questions: How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment, or mobile home on April 1, 2010? Were there any additional people staying here on April 1, 2010 that you did not include in Question 1? Mark all that apply: Is this house, apartment, or mobile home – What is your telephone number? What is Person 1's name? What is Person 1's sex? What is Person 1's age and Person 1's date of birth? Is Person 1 of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin? What is Person 1's race? Does Person 1 sometimes live or stay somewhere else? The form included space to repeat all of these questions for up to twelve residents total. In contrast to the 2000 census, an Internet response option was not offered, nor was the form available for download. Detailed socioeconomic information collected during past censuses will continue to be collected through the American Community Survey; the survey provides data about communities in the United States on a 1-year or 3-year cycle, depending on the size of the community, rather than once every 10 years.
A small percentage of the population on a rotating basis will receive the survey each year, no household will receive it more than once every five years. In June 2009, the U. S. Census Bureau announced. However, the final form did not contain a separate "same-sex married couple" option; when noting the relationship between household members, same-sex couples who are married could mark their spouses as being "Husband or wife", the same response given by opposite-sex married couples. An "unmarried partner" option was available for couples; the 2010 census cost $13 billion $42 per capita. Operational costs were $5.4 billion under the $7 billion budget. In December 2010 the Government Accountability Office noted that the cost of conducting the census has doubled each decade since 1970. In a detailed 2004 report to Congress, the GAO called on the Census Bureau to address cost and design issues, at that time, had estimated the 2010 Census cost to be $11 billion. In August 2010, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke announced that the census operational costs came in under budget.
Locke credited the management practices of Census Bureau director Robert Groves, citing in particular the decision to buy additional advertising in locations where responses lagged, which improved the overall response rate. The agency has begun to rely more on questioning neighbors or other reliable third parties when a person could not be reached at home, which reduced the cost of follow-up visits.

Plantation is a city in Broward County, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census the population was 84,955, it is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area. The city's name comes from the previous part-owner of the land, the Everglades Plantation Company, their attempts to establish a rice plantation in the area. Before the start of the twentieth century, the area that became Plantation was part of the Everglades wetlands covered by 2–3 feet of water. In 1855, Florida state passed the Internal Improvement Act and established the Internal Improvement Trust Fund, the trustees of which act as a government agency to oversee management and development of state land. In 1897, the Interior Department submitted 2.9 million acres to the Florida Land Office. The Seminole people used the area for hunting and camping, used the nearby Pine Island Ridge as a headquarters during the second and third Seminole Wars. In 1903, Florida Governor William Sherman Jennings began an initiative to drain the Everglades.
To establish Florida's entitlement to the land, Jennings obtained a new patent for land "aggregating 2,862,280 acres." Following his election in 1905, Jennings' successor, Napoleon Bonaparte Broward appointed Jennings as general counsel of the Internal Improvement Fund and continued the initiative for complete drainage of the Everglades. Broward described the drainage as a duty of the trustees, promised to create an "Empire of the Everglades"; the first attempts to drain the Everglades began in 1906, with the building and launching of two dredges into the New River: The Okeechobee began cutting from the river's south fork, The Everglades began cutting from the north fork up to Lake Okeechobee. The first waterway opened after the drainage attempts was named The Holloway Canal, after Captain Holloway. Following a meeting at the 1908 Democratic National Convention and Jennings established a deal with Richard'Dicky' J. Bolles: The fund trustees granted Bolles 500,000 acres of overflowed state lands at $2 per acre, with an agreement for the State to use 50% of the $1 million proceeds purely for drainage and reclamation, another agreement to establish 5 main canals.
Following this, Bolles founded the Florida Fruit Lands Company, becoming the Everglades' first private developer. The Everglades Plantation Company was established in January 1909, following entry into a 2-year contract with the Internal Improvement Fund trustees by Adam A. Boggs and A. B. Sanders to create a rice plantation in the Everglades; the agreement enabled Boggs & Sanders to rent a significant amount of land around the North New River Canal, subsequently purchase the land for between $3 and $15 per acre. It was discovered that the area leased to Boggs & Sanders belonged to Dicky Bolles, as part of the 500,000 acres he had purchased. Sanders led further reclamation efforts including the digging of 60 miles of ditches. Boggs & Sanders were granted extensions to their 2-year contract, on the grounds that the land remained under water. In 1911, Bolles held a land lottery at $20–24 per acre, granting residential lots in the'Town of Progresso' to anyone purchasing farmland of five acres or more in the drainage land.
As a result, a lawsuit was brought against Bolles. In 1912, the North New River Canal opened, the Sewell Lock, the first lock in Florida, one of the oldest remaining structures in Broward County, was built on it, just outside of what is now Plantation; the new lock enabled access between the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee by water. The lawsuit against Bolles was settled in November 1913, with Bolles retaining the $1.4 million received, but prohibiting any further collection until the land was drained and surveyed. Bolles was arrested in December of that year, but was subsequently found innocent. Drainage of the land failed, with most of it reverting to the state for taxes. In the years following their original agreement, contract negotiation escalated into legal battles between the Everglades Plantation Company and the Internal Improvement Trustees; these disputes ended in the company's favor. The Trustees no longer insisted on continuation of the rice plantation attempts and, from this point, the company focused on land sales.
Broward county, was created by Florida legislature in 1915, by combining portions of Dade county and Palm Beach County. Driven by the success of the drainage projects, the Florida Land Boom took place between 1920 and 1925, seeing rapid growth in population and land sales; the boom reached its peak in the fall of 1925 and subsequently collapsed in 1926. The land boom was followed by two severe hurricanes striking the area impactin
Longboat Key, Florida
Longboat Key is a town in Manatee and Sarasota counties along the central west coast of the U. S. state of Florida, coterminous with the barrier island of the same name. Longboat Key is the Gulf of Mexico, it is equally divided between Manatee and Sarasota counties. The town of Longboat Key was incorporated in 1955 and is part of the Bradenton–Sarasota–Venice Metropolitan Statistical Area; the town's population was 6,888 at the 2010 census, down from 7,603 at the 2000 census. Longboat Key was inhabited by Native Americans; the area what is now Longboat Key was scouted by Juan de Añasco, the first known European to explore the key and Hernando De Soto's scout. He spent about 2 months attempting to find a landing site, he was most the first man to see and explore Sarasota Bay, Boca Ceiga Bay and the Manatee River. According to local legend he believed the Indians were hostile and when they reached land on the island and fled leaving their Longboat in a bayou. Pirate Jean Lafitte was said to have been shipwrecked on Longboat Key.
For the next 304 years it was ignored. It has been known that there were Cuban and Spanish fisherman along with squatters had made a camp and made a trading post on the northern part of the island before 1842. At the time the area was referred to on maps as "Saraxola" and "Zarazote". There is little know about the island after 1848, it has been known though that an early settler of Sarasota and its first post master, Charles Abbe had a plantation for citrus and pineapples on an unknown location on the island. In the late 19th-century, Longboat Key was opened up for settlement. Longboat Key had appeared to be two people named Colin and Rowlin W. Witt in 1882 and claimed 7.15 acres on the north end of the island. Thomas Mann, a notable settler had purchased land and moved to it with he and his sons in 1884 receiving 144.5 acres on the key. In which he moved to in 1888 with his family and his house was located in the north end of the key. A year after buying the land the town was known as Longbeach.
With a passage being dug in 1895 from Sarasota Bay to Tampa Bay steamships and Paddle boats could access the island. Soon, a mail service was established; the land was sold in 1905 for $500 for commercial development. In the early 1900s Longboat Key was a farming community until 1921. Longboat Key was popular for growing fruits and tomatoes with Byron Corey owning a farm, on the New Pass on the southernmost point of the key. In 1912, The Sarasota Times said on its headline: "From a lonely Key, it is now a center of trucking and fruit growing." In 1921 the key lost most of its agriculture and buildings during a hurricane. There were no roads that lead here until 1929 when a bridge lead to St. Armands, so most transportation was done with a ferry dock on the north end of the key; that same year, the island was split in two counties and Manatee. In 1925 at the south end, John Ringling, a developer, built the Ritz Carlton Hotel which began in March 1926, never completed and torn down. In 1936 for the first time, telephone service was brought to the South End of the island and by 1939 or 1940 it was brought to the North End.
In World War II Longboat Key had a bombing range. In 1942 it was used by B-26 planes and from 1943-1945 it was used by P-51 planes; when it was used from 8 A. M to 5 P. M the island was closed off during training sessions. On November 13, 1955, the town was incorporated in a 186–13 vote. At the time only about a third of Longboat Key was developed and about 215 people lived there; the town when it was incorporated changed its name from Longbeach to Longboat Key. In the 1960s and 1970s the Arvida corporation bought the south end of Longboat key and developed it for $13.5 million. President Bush had arrived on Longboat on September 10, 2001 the day before the September 11 Attacks to read to second graders in a campaign called at the Emma E. Booker School in Sarasota. On November 14, 2015 the town of Longboat Key celebrated a 60- year anniversary; the town of Longboat Key has a commission-manager form of government. The United States Postal Service operates a post office on Longboat Key, with the entire island having the ZIP code of 34228.
The post office was established on October 10, 1907, as "Longbeach" and was located in the community of that name on the north end of the key. On February 1, 1958, the name of the Longbeach post office was changed to Longboat Key. There was a post office named "Longboat" established on March 27, 1914, in the Sarasota County portion of the key, but it was discontinued on January 14, 1922, its functions were assumed by the Sarasota post office; the quasi-governmental form of the Condominium Association exists in one of its most complex forms in and on Longboat Key, comprising the "Federation of Longboat Key Condominiums". In addition to the Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce, in concert with the Town of Longboat Key, these entities have made Longboat Key an exemplar of local government and citizen cooperation in participation and management for communities of its type. Longboat Key is served by two newspapers published year-round, the Longboat Observer and the Longboat Key News In recent years, "federalizing" the Key by having the U.
S. Congress create. Longboat Key is located within two Florida counties, Manatee County in the north and Sarasota County in the south, but there have been calls for the Florida Legislature to pursue an initiative to create a 68th county, "Longboat Key County," to simplify governance of the island. Neither of these initiatives is to be passed, however; as o
DeSoto County, Florida
DeSoto County is a county located in the U. S. state of Florida. As of the 2010 census, the population was 34,862, its county seat is Arcadia. DeSoto County comprises the Arcadia, FL Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the North Port-Sarasota, FL Combined Statistical Area. DeSoto County was created in 1887 from Manatee County, it was named for Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, whose name was honored in Hernando County. DeSoto County included several other present-day counties until 1921, when the Florida legislature created the following new counties: Charlotte, Glades and Highlands. During World War II, DeSoto County operated the Carlstrom Field Air Base, which provided training for both American and British pilots. Twenty-three British pilots were killed while training at the base and are honored at DeSoto County's Oak Ridge Cemetery, located in the town of Arcadia. In 1945, the base was decommissioned; the base was sold to the State of Florida for one dollar and converted into a mental health facility known as G. Pierce Wood Memorial Hospital.
The hospital has since been converted into a facility for juvenile offenders. The facility is now up for sale. On August 13, 2004, Hurricane Charley passed directly through DeSoto County. Hurricane-force winds persisted for an hour, damaging most of the structures in the county and causing some to be destroyed. According to the U. S.

A metropolitan area, sometimes referred to as a metro area or commuter belt, is a region consisting of a densely populated urban core and its less-populated surrounding territories, sharing industry and housing. A metro area comprises multiple jurisdictions and municipalities: neighborhoods, boroughs, towns, suburbs, districts and nations like the eurodistricts; as social and political institutions have changed, metropolitan areas have become key economic and political regions. Metropolitan areas include one or more urban areas, as well as satellite cities and intervening rural areas that are socioeconomically tied to the urban core measured by commuting patterns. In the United States, the concept of the metropolitan statistical area has gained prominence. Metropolitan areas may themselves be part of larger megalopolises. For urban centres outside metropolitan areas, that generate a similar attraction at smaller scale for their region, the concept of the regiopolis and regiopolitan area or regio was introduced by German professors in 2006.
In the United States, the term micropolitan statistical area is used. A metropolitan area combines an urban agglomeration with zones not urban in character, but bound to the center by employment or other commerce; these outlying zones are sometimes known as a commuter belt, may extend well beyond the urban zone, to other political entities. For example, New York on Long Island is considered part of the New York metropolitan area. In practice, the parameters of metropolitan areas, in both official and unofficial usage, are not consistent. Sometimes they are little different from an urban area, in other cases they cover broad regions that have little relation to a single urban settlement. Population figures given for one metro area can vary by millions. There has been no significant change in the basic concept of metropolitan areas since its adoption in 1950, although significant changes in geographic distributions have occurred since and more are expected; because of the fluidity of the term "metropolitan statistical area," the term used colloquially is more "metro service area," "metro area," or "MSA" taken to include not only a city, but surrounding suburban and sometimes rural areas, all which it is presumed to influence.
A polycentric metropolitan area contains multiple urban agglomerations not connected by continuous development. In defining a metropolitan area, it is sufficient that a city or cities form a nucleus with which other areas have a high degree of integration. See the many lists of metropolitan areas itemized at § Lists of metropolitan areas; the Australian Bureau of Statistics defines Greater Capital City Statistical Areas as the areas of functional extent of the seven state capitals and the Australian Capital Territory. GCCSAs replaced "Statistical Divisions" used until 2011. In Brazil, metropolitan areas are called "metropolitan regions"; each State defines its own legislation for the creation and organization of a metropolitan region. The creation of a metropolitan region is not intended for any statistical purpose, although the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics uses them in its reports, their main purpose is to allow for a better management of public policies of common interest to all cities involved.
They don't have political, electoral or jurisdictional power whatsoever, so citizens living in a metropolitan region do not elect representatives for them. Statistics Canada defines a census metropolitan area as an area consisting of one or more adjacent municipalities situated around a major urban core. To form a CMA, the metropolitan area must have a population of at least 100,000, at least half within the urban core. To be included in the CMA, adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the core, as measured by commuter flows derived from census data. In Chinese, there used to be no clear distinction between "megalopolis" and "metropolitan area" until National Development and Reform Commission issued Guidelines on the Cultivation and Development of Modern Metropolitan Areas on Feb 19, 2019, in which a metropolitan area was defined as "an urbanized spatial form in a megalopolis dominated by supercity or megacity, or a large metropolis playing a leading part, within the basic range of 1-hour commute area."
The European Union's statistical agency, has created a concept named Larger Urban Zone. The LUZ represents an attempt at a harmonised definition of the metropolitan area, the goal was to have an area from a significant share of the resident commute into the city, a concept known as the "functional urban region". France's national statistics institute, the INSEE, names an urban core and its surrounding area of commuter influence an aire urbaine; this statistical method applies to agglomerations of all sizes, but the INSEE sometimes uses the term aire métropolitaine to refer to France's largest aires urbaines. In German definition, metropolian areas are eleven most densely populated areas in the Federal Republic of Germany, they comprise the major German cities and their surrounding catchment areas and form the political and cultural centres of the country. For urban centres outside metropolitan areas, that generate a similar attraction at smaller scale for their region, the concept of the Regiopolis and regiopolitan area or regio was introduced by German professors in 2006.
In India, a metropolitan city is defin
Siesta Key, Florida
Siesta Key is a barrier island off the southwest coast of the U. S. state of Florida, located between the Gulf of Mexico. A portion of it lies within the city boundary of Sarasota, but the majority of the key is a census-designated place in Sarasota County. Siesta Key is part of the Bradenton—Sarasota—Venice Metropolitan Statistical Area. From the 1800s and early 1900s, Siesta Key was known by a variety of names, including “Little Sarasota Key” and “Sarasota Key.” The first attempts to develop the key was by the Siesta Land Company in 1907 consisting of Harry Higel, Captain Louis Roberts, E. M. Arbogast; the company platted the northern end of the key as "Siesta on the Gulf" as well as dredged bayous and built docks. The only access to Siesta Key was by boat or ferry until the first bridge connecting it to the mainland was completed in 1917; the bridge was replaced in 1927 along with an addition of a second bridge located on the southern end of the key. The entire key was recognized as "Siesta Key" by 1952.
