Census 2020: Reasons to Say YES!
As we move into 2020, its time to start spreading the word about the upcoming census – and we are hoping we can rely on your help!
The census counts our population and households across the nation. Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors.
People in your community use census data in all kinds of ways:
• Residents use the census to support community initiatives involving legislation, quality-of-life and consumer advocacy.
• Businesses use Census Bureau data to decide where to build factories, offices and stores, and these create jobs.
• Real estate developers and city planners use the census to plan new homes and improve neighborhoods.
• Local government officials use the census to ensure public safety and plan new schools and hospitals.
Completing a census form is the most important civic duty a Houstonian has this spring. A complete count is critical to programs as wide-ranging from more school lunches, better roads and highways, or more housing assistance. Every Houstonian will benefit from a complete count.
Experts estimate that more than $10,000 is lost every year for each person not counted!
The City of Houston and Harris County have partnered, along with Houston in Action to have a unified Complete Count Committee to make sure everyone is counted.
