Mythbusters: 2020 Census Edition

There are so many misconceptions and myths about the Census, and it's important to know the truth about why it's so significant to our communities and everyone living in them. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year, and the results also determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.

Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of your community.

Thus, GBCA is working to help encourage our New Jersey communities to respond to the census and share information on why it's so important. To get started, check out these 2020 Census myths, debunked, and visit my2020census.gov to respond!
