The U.S. Census Bureau will hand deliver questionnaires to residents in areas of Harrison, Hancock and Jackson counties most devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

The Census Bureau isn't pinpointing the communities, streets or blocks where the deliveries will be made.

Questionnaires go out in late March and should be delivered nationwide by April 1, known as Census Day.

Census officials say residents who use post office boxes for their mail will be notified of "controlled environments" where they can pick up their questionnaires.

    How can you get an accurate census when most of us Gulfport residents had to relocate? My family had to go as far as the state of Maryland.
