More on the 2020 Census – AARP
SGS member Pat Rongey shares a link to an AARP article highlighting details of the upcoming census. Between March 12 and 20, most households will receive a postcard invitation to respond online to the 2020 census. Those who don’t answer will receive the census by mail. If there is no household response, census takers will go door to door in an attempt to obtain the household’s data.  

According to the article, “taking the census online is projected to save an estimated $5.2 billion.”  But it isn’t all about the money.

More people are living longer.  “Census data will be used over the coming decade to decide where to place parks, roads and hospitals. It will determine funding for community projects that benefit people of all ages, including mass transit, which helps many people remain in their homes longer. “  Read the article HERE.
