Village of Roselle Committed to Promoting a Complete Count for the 2020 Census
The goal of the 2020 Census is to count all residents living in the United States on April 1, 2020. The census is important to the Village of Roselle since the results help determine how the federal government distributes more than $675 billion to local governments. The resulting statistics impact housing, education, transportation, and public policy, and will be used to determine how many congressional districts each state will have.
The US Census Bureau counts every person living in the United States every ten years. The goal for the 2020 Census is to “count everyone once, only once, and in the right place“. In order to achieve this, the US Census Bureau will mail census materials to the majority of homes throughout the United States beginning March 12. For the first time in history, 2020 Census forms will also be available online. Questions about the legal status of respondents are not included as part of the census survey.
The Village of Roselle has established a Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census to help ensure that all residents are counted. Committee partners include the Township of Schaumburg and the Roselle Public Library. Those with interest in serving on the committee can email Administrative Intern Brian Joanis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A sample copy of the 2020 Census Questionnaire is available on the US Census Bureau website. Additional information about the 2020 Census is available in this video from the US Census Bureau:
