The 2020 Census Digital Action Weekend: May 1-3 is a celebration of the nation reaching the milestone of more than half of the households responding to the Census – and a call to increase the response rate throughout the country.
Digital Action Weekend in Cobb County is a chance to bolster this Get Out the Count effort by encouraging families, friends, neighbors and co-workers to complete the Census, especially among the hardest-to-count populations.
You can inspire others: If you have completed the Census for your household, please accept the challenge to ask at least three or four others to join you in responding to the Census and to know you all are making a positive difference.
As of late April, 58 percent of Cobb households responded to the Census. Census results impact us in many ways, including Head Start programs, school lunches, plans for highways, affordable housing and support for firefighters and families in need.
While we are sheltering in place at home, let’s take a few minutes to complete the 2020 Census. It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail – all without having to meet a census taker. Please respond to the census today. Visit 2020census.gov to fill out the survey.
