As if we didn’t have enough going on this year, it’s also a Census year in the U.S. It’s likely to be a difficult year for the US government t rely on the Census return given all a that is going on with the pandemic.
According to the Census web site:
“The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
It’s also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.”
As a public service, Boss Boss Radio reminds our U.S. audience members that your Census response is required by law. You can find more information at 2020census.gov.
