The Census is based on a simple principle which is also a lofty ideal: everybody counts.
Getting accurate counts of all our communities means accurate Congressional representation, accurate amounts of federal tax money coming back into our communities, and as any genealogist or historian knows, accurate historical information for centuries to come! Find out more about the Census at 2020census.gov.
The best way to make sure we get an accurate count is to make sure enough people in our community are involved in the Census! Our goal right now is to recruit Census workers, which is an opportunity to make money while helping your home community.
Census workers work in their own neighborhoods, have flexible hours, and can do the job even while they have another job. Interested?
