As you are well aware – the year 2020 means that the United States Census is happening. Every 10 years, this country does a total count of people in the nation – an important way to ensure our communities are getting the support we need. Hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake for our state, therefore it is vital that we take the time to complete the census online at 2020Census.gov
What is determined by the census, you ask?
-Access to more healthcare, where hospitals are built
-The number of representatives Arizona gets in the U.S. House of Representatives
-Allocations to the education systems, ensuring our children’s school is funded
As always, the census is secure – your information will not be shared with any outside agency, protected by U.S. law. Rest assured, your data is safe and cannot be used for any other reason but to count your household for census purposes.
How is Arizona doing right now?
-Currently, Arizona’s self-response rate is at 56.1% – as of 5/18/20. This response rate ranks 33rd in the country, out of 50 states plus the District of Columbia. Let’s show the nation that Arizona cares about being counted – and let’s rise up the rankings. Visit 2020census.gov today! The entire process should only take 5-10 minutes total, but ensures our community’s voice is heard for the next decade.
