It’s crunch time, Apache Junction. The 2020 U.S. Census is critical in determining resources for every community, county and state. That is no different in Apache Junction.
And you still have time to respond on your own, online, by phone or by mail, by going to 2020census.gov. Soon, census takers will be knocking on doors of folks who have not respond to make sure everyone is counted.
Here is the latest from the Census Bureau regarding operations of the census going into the final six weeks of national count.
Remember, Census statistics are used to determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and informs legislative district boundaries. They also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in public funds are allocated by state, local and federal lawmakers to communities for public services and infrastructure like hospitals, emergency services, schools and bridges over the next 10 years.
The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. Responding to the 2020 Census is easy, safe and important, and is key to shaping the future of communities.
Responding to the 2020 Census is easy using a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet or by phone, in English or 12 other languages. There are also 59 non-English language guides and videos (plus American Sign Language) available at 2020census.gov ensuring more than 99% of U.S. households can respond online in their preferred language. It has never been easier to respond on your own — without having to meet a census taker – which is important with the current health and safety guidance being provided by national, state and local health authorities.
When you respond:
Some households may have received a paper questionnaire along with their first invitation. Households that have not responded online or by phone will receive a paper questionnaire. For more information, visit 2020census.gov.
