Making Sense of the Census
By Julie Menin, Director of NYC Census
Have you checked your mail lately?
If you’re one of the New Yorkers that
hasn’t responded to the 2020 Census yet,
you might have noticed a postcard in your
mailbox from the Census Bureau.
Don’t worry — you’re not in trouble.
But your community could be if you
These postcards and mailers are just
another way the Census Bureau is trying
to make sure every one of us is counted.
After all, there’s a good chance you have
other things on your mind. Now more
than ever, we all have new and urgent
priorities in dealing with the COVID-19
pandemic, so it might be easy to lose sight
of things like the 2020 Census. But the
COVID-19 pandemic also highlights just
how much we all depend on our public
services, and that we need a complete 2020
Census count to keep them fully funded
and functioning for years to come.
With that in mind, the Census Bureau
sends reminders to help make sure
no one gets left behind. And in fact, some
of these latest mailers even contain the
mail-in version of the 2020 Census form
— so if you haven’t responded because of
issues with your internet or phone, now
you have a backup option.
We encourage you to respond right
away to ensure that you and your family
are fully counted.
So if you found a census mailer in
your mailbox, let that be the inspiration
you need to get counted. It only takes 10
minutes, and you can also do it online at
my2020census.gov or call 1-844-330-2020
to complete it over the phone.
Already filled your form out? The
work doesn’t end there. Help make sure
your families, friends, and neighbors are
also getting counted. Remember, these
resources are shared between all of us.
We’re all in this together. Let’s make it
“Making Sense of the Census” is a
weekly column from Julie Menin, Director
of NYC Census 2020. Every week we will
be publishing pieces from Julie and guest
authors laying out the facts and answering
tough questions about this year’s census.
