The 2020 Census is here. The EDC encourages every Census recipient needs to have their employees, friends, and family to fill it out.
Why is this important for South Miami-Dade?
Data from the 2020 Census will impact our community for the next 10 years! $675 Billion annually is allocated by the Federal Government based on the Census. In 2010, Florida had the highest omission rate in the US, which cost the state over $7 billion in lost revenue. A third of the Florida Budget is made up of Census-driven programs. As a growth state, an accurate count gives us more money from Washington and provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding for schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs.
Starting in March, you will get an invitation to respond in the mail.
Taking the census is safe and easy. Your data is confidential and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. By law, your information cannot be shared with immigration enforcement agencies, law enforcement agencies, or be used to determine your eligibility for government benefits.
