A Census Challenge

April 25th, 2020 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Government Documents, Main Branch, West Branch

In this uncertain time, it can be easy to focus only on the Coronavirus, however, there are important things going on right now that we need to keep in mind.  If you have not yet filled out your census, now is the time to do so. 

The Census Bureau has a really great website where you can see the current response rate of our state down to the town and township level.  Did you know New Hampshire’s census response rate is currently below the national average?  Please help us change this.  Every little bit helps. 

Challenge your friends to take the census. This is about money for our communities, schools, and businesses.  Per the census website, “The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.”.  There is no more important time to take the census than now.  Please get the word out and share information about how important the census is on your social media accounts, specifically Twitter

Please be aware that there is bad information out there about the census.  Please get the facts and ignore the rumors. You can share this on social media, too.

Finally, please take the census online now at https://my2020census.gov/
