Still time to be counted in 2020 Census

Thanks to a federal judge, the Census Bureau may have the time it needs to provide a complete and accurate count—until Oct. 31 to gather information and until April 2021 to deliver the results. The administration has pushed the Census Bureau to rush the job—stop counting by Oct. 5 and deliver results by Dec. 31—and is expected to appeal to the Supreme Court to get its way, which will take some time. For now, the court has ordered the Census Bureau to continue the head count. Truncating the census would deprive many communities and schools—especially those with large Black and Hispanic populations—of billions of dollars in federal aid, as well as political representation. If you haven’t already, be sure to complete the census questionnaire.
