  • National Census Day (April 1, 2020) is fast approaching. Tune in to this webinar to learn about complete count efforts in the Denver region and the state of Colorado. Webinar attendees will also have a chance to share strategies they hope to employ and other ideas to help make local counts as accurate as possible.

    The census affects your bottom line. Beyond the apportionment of congressional representation, it provides essential data resources at no cost to the public. Federal agencies, states, local governments, businesses and journalists use census data for a variety of purposes, from grant distribution and emergency preparedness evaluation to shaping transportation plans and tax policy. Let’s help get the count right.

    Webinar attendees will learn what has changed in the census since 2010, how the U.S. Census Bureau plans to stage the count, the importance of counting every person, how to get involved in statewide and regional census efforts and key cross-sector partnerships. Don’t miss your chance to ask questions and share your thoughts about how to make local counts as accurate as possible.
