CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -  The process to complete the 2010 census will officially begin in Chesterfield County this week.

The National Census road tour will stop at Manchester Middle School Friday and Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The van features interactive exhibits and information on its impact and will be featured at this year's Super Bowl.

Chesterfield is pushing residents to participate in the census. A better estimate of how many people live in the county is needed for planning and for federal funding.
