2020 Census Project
The 2020 Census is here! There is still time to help get our community counted!
2020 Census timeline has shifted due to COVID-19; the self response period has been extended until October 31 with enumerators beginning in-person follow up for non-response on August 11.
In 2010, children 0-5 had the highest under-count of any age group in the country. An estimated 1 million children were NOT counted! Let’s make a difference for 2020!
In mid-March, every household will receive an invitation to participate in the census via internet, phone, and mail, which means the time to get the work out is NOW!
