Questionnaire Assistance Centers have begun opening across the country and in the Inland Northwest for people who need help filling out the 2010 census form.

Coeur d'Alene locations include the St. Vincent de Paul HELP Center, 201 E. Harrison Ave., and the Idaho Department of Labor, 1221 W. Ironwood. Spokane's 17 locations include the STA Plaza, 701 W. Riverside Ave., Goodwill Industries, 202 E. Third Ave., and the West Central Community Center, 1603 N. Belt.

Nationwide, the U.S. Census Bureau will staff more than 30,000 of the centers, where people can get help with the forms in multiple languages. They are scheduled to operate through April 19, depending on the level of assistance needed. The locations can be found at www.2010census.gov.
