There is still time to ensure you are counted in the US Census! However, the US Census Bureau has announced that September 30, 2020 is now the final date for responding to the census. This gives us one-month LESS time to ensure Christian County gets counted.
Self-responding is the easiest way to make sure you are counted! It is quick, easy, and can be done online at my2020census.gov or over the phone by dialing 844-330-2020. Households do not need an ID code to respond to the Census online or by phone. Making sure you are counted now is the easiest way to ensure an enumerator does not knock on your door in the future.
The Census helps secure future funding for our communities. Emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic are precisely why the government needs accurate Census data. Census participation will help ensure our communities get their fair share of funding for schools, hospitals, and other education and health programs we need for strong families and communities.
An accurate census and understanding our population are foundations of our democracy. Public health experts, government officials, and first responders all rely on population data to make critical decisions in crises like the one we are currently experiencing. Responding to the census is a way for residents to do their part in maintaining the functionality of our communities, as population data will be pertinent during our recovery from this public health crisis.
