2020 Census Information
In less than one year, our country will embark on the 2020 Census. Census numbers are used to determine how much the federal government will allocate to our communities for road funding, food assistance and education dollars. The 2020 Census will also be used for redistricting.
In the 2010 Census – Michigan was the only state in the country to loose population. Estimates indicate that only 80% of our population was counted. And those that were uncounted were mainly people of color, immigrants, people who live in poverty, people with young children and people from the LGBT population. This means that for the past 10 years – these people were “unseen”. It is very important that we change this.
