The Census isn’t until 2020 but the work to make sure we get a full and accurate count is happening right now. Big changes are in store and it takes time to get them right. This Census is going to depend significantly on electronic reporting requiring internet infrastructures to handle massive user demand. Old challenges such has how to get good counts in rural areas, among infants and young children, on territorial lands or among new immigrants still need better solutions. At lot’s at stake, including availability of public dollars to close disparity gaps, data to drive economic development and smart business choices and fair representation in government. Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Alliance of Latino Elected Officials Educational Fund, Joan Naymark, executive director of Minnesotans for the American Community Survey and Bob Tracy, director of public policy and communication for Minnesota Council on Foundations are working to ensure accurate counts nationally and in Minnesota. Find out what you can do to ready your community for the 2020 Census, because Minnesota is better when we all count.
