2020 may seem a long way off, especially with how long each year seems in this political climate, but when it comes to getting households registered, it’s not.
This time the census is going to be entirely online, with only 3 codes granted per home. This causes issues for several reasons, but two mains are:
1. Many underpriveldge don’t have regular access to internet, computer, or smart phones.
2. If a home only has 3 codes, it can mean that families living in non-permitted structures on the property (garages, granny apartments, sheds) won’t be counted.
You can help by asking your local United Way or other Non profits to join in the fight to make sure everyone is counted. There’s a lot of great info here:
