The Time Is Now. We must #GetCountedNYC Before the Knock…
The last day of the self-response period for the 2020 Census was originally scheduled for Friday, July 31. With the deadline extended due to COVID-19, on August 11, NYC’s uncounted households will begin to receive a knock on the door by Census Bureau enumerators.
Self-response data is more accurate than the data collected by the Bureau when they knock on your door. And many of us don’t like opening our doors for unexpected guests, or fear misuse of information.
That is why we are launching a new campaign to ensure all New Yorkers get counted Before the Knock. A final push before August 11 is critical to getting New York counted accurately, fairly, and urgently.
This guide provides key messages and graphics for you to share with your communities and stakeholders, reminding them that no matter where they live in the city, or even if they aren’t here right now, we’re all in this together, and we need their count. The guide can also be seen below.
Completing the Census is one thing every New Yorker can do to make sure New York has the resources it needs and the representation we deserve for the next 10 years.
