A complete county count really matters
406 Making it Count in the 2020 Census – Elective
Counties are at the forefront of a statewide effort to ensure an accurate and complete count of the total population – the results of which determine federal funding levels, political representation, and much more. The landscape for 2020 U.S Census is markedly different than prior years with unique challenges that include a heavy reliance on on-line participation, language barriers, and underlying sentiments of mistrust in some areas. In addition to these obstacles, California is home to a large “hard to count” population which necessitates greater outreach and attention. The conversation will focus on the work being done on the local level to avoid an undercount, innovative solutions and partnerships, and maximizing returns on funding opportunities.
Facilitators: Dorothy Johnson and Tracy Sullivan, CSAC Legislative Representatives, and policy experts from around the state.
