The U.S. Census: The Importance Of Getting Counted
In the 2010 U.S. Census only 70% of Orlando residents were counted. It is estimated that our local community lost $2,200 in federal funding per person because many residents were not counted. This amount could have funded critical services in the City of Orlando. This workshop will explain the importance of the U.S. Census for representation and federal funding. We will look into best practices used across the country to count hard-to-reach communities.
