Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- The regional director of the U.S. Census bureau is visiting the agency's West Virginia offices in Morgantown, Charleston and Beckley this week.

Detroit-based director Dwight Dean is meeting with local census office staff and managers to evaluate the progress of data collection so far.

He's in Morgantown and Charleston on Monday, and in Beckley on Tuesday.

Dean says it's important workers follow up on those who did not mail back their forms.

He says a full count ensures West Virginia communities get adequate political representation and their fair share for local programs such as public safety, rescue and job training.
