Despite a massive push on the national, state, and local levels, Los Angeles residents are still not filling out and sending in their 2010 Census forms, according to the Daily News. Federal officials noted: "Two weeks after the forms were sent out, about 11 percent of city residents have turned them in - compared with 16 percent statewide." An interactive map updated daily shows that today LA County and California are at 33% and 34% respectively, which is on par with the 34% national return level.
