LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — With the beginning of a new decade, you can expect to hear from the federal government soon.

That's because its time for the census.

Helping the effort this year is University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari, who recently filmed a commercial promoting the census.

Calipari and the rest of the university are supporting this year's census because the results help determine where money for roads, schools and hospitals is spent.

Calipari said a new development in this year's census makes it easier than ever to take part.

"For the first time, the Census Bureau will accept responses online, through a quick and secure process."
