Every 10 years the United States Government conducts the Decennial Census and relies on our local citizens to ensure that everyone is accounted for. Here is what Louisa D. of Friday Harbor had to say about her experience in 2010.
“Like many of our Island residents, I had the opportunity to work for the 2010 U.S. Census. Some of my colleagues were unemployed at the time, “between jobs,” or like myself, retired. The additional income was very helpful as it was (and still is) significantly above normal pay wages. I liked that the work hours were flexible and that it was just for a short time period. I found the work to be interesting as well as rewarding!”
There is some misinformation circulating and I am happy to say with certainty that there will absolutely be no question about citizenship on the census.
The 2020 population numbers shape how political power and federal tax dollars are distributed in each area over the next 10 years. This will affect the number of congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets. They also guide how an estimated $880 billion a year in federal funding is distributed for schools, roads, and other public services in local communities. In addition, making sure everyone is counted helps encourage economic growth and ensure public services to each area because the demographic data are used by businesses to determine, for example, where to build new supermarkets and by emergency responders to locate injured people after natural disasters.
The goal is to account for every single person living in the country, It is in the interest of all of us that no one is left out.
