|Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen is working to create a District “E” Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census to ensure a complete and accurate count of every resident in the district. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding will be distributed to states, cities, and communities. |
“It is imperative that we count each and every resident living in District ‘E’ to ensure that we get our fair share of federal, state, and local funding,” said Councilwoman Nguyen.
The District “E” Complete Count Committee will be comprised of representatives from various communities in our district. These individuals will help spread awareness and share information about the 2020 Census and encourage residents to respond either online, by phone, or by mail.
In the 2010 Census, according to the Census Bureau’s Response Outreach Area Mapper, 18 out of the 28 census tracts in District “E” were undercounted with less than a 30 percent response rate. The census will provide the Council with updated numbers on how many residents are in the district. Population data is essential for businesses when determining where to open stores, expand, and which products and services to offer.
If you would like to be apart of the Complete Count Committee, please sign up by texting your information to Councilwoman Nguyen at 504-410-6231.
