After a recent court ruling the court ordered an extension of the Census 2020 data collection deadline. As a result of COVID-19 and natural disasters (in some states like the wildfires in California) many people were unable to fill out their census information and door to door Census data collection was halted for a period of time. Complete and accurate Census data is CRITICAL because it only happens once every 10 years and the data is used to inform key policy decision for political representation, redistricting, amount of federal funding allocated to states and local communities, state and local planning, emergency response and a base for federal surveys.
You and your family count! If you have not had a chance to fill out the 2020 Census questionnaire we strongly encourage you to do so. It takes less than 10 minutes and its confidential. For more information about the 2020 Census visit: https://my2020census.gov
