We are excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the @uscensusbureau to support the #2020Census! As a partner, we’ll be working to ensure that our community is accurately represented. To learn about the upcoming census, visit 2020census.gov. #2020Census
Online: For the first time, in 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online. The process will be quick and secure. You can respond to the census in less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. You’ll still be able to respond by mail.
Every 10 years, the @uscensusbureau undertakes a mammoth task: counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for our community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals, schools), how we plan for the future, and our voice in government.
What matters to you? Schools? Transportation? Hospitals? Data from the @uscensusbureau help inform planning efforts for all these important community resources.
The ‘Do Not’ Count?
- Anyone living away from here, either at college or in the armed forces. They will need to fill out the census to where they are on April 1; like at college.
- Do not count anyone in a nursing home, jail, prison, detention facility, etc., on April 1, 2020
- Leave these people OFF your questionnaire, even if they will return to live here after they college, the nursing home, the military, jail, etc. Otherwise they may be counted twice.
The next decennial census is just around the corner in 2020. Make sure you’re counted! An accurate snapshot means that communities across the nation receive the funding, services, and business support they deserve and need. And your responses are confidential.
