U.S. Census 2020

New Jersey is stressing the importance of participating in the census, and we ask you to urge your residents to do so as well. Federal funding for social programs, transportation, public safety, and health insurance are directly tied to the census, as is New Jersey's representation in congress. Attached here is a flyer and frequently asked questions document you can share with your residents to encourage their participation. It includes what residents will, and will not, be asked, and assures them that their responses are protected by law. We thank you for sharing this participation. In New Jersey, everyone counts!
