The 2020 Census has commenced! Invitations will arrive to families in mid-March via mail but the census can be completed online in as little as 10 minutes! Answering these basic questions about your family and household has a big impact on our state for the next ten years.
Children under the age of five are considered a hard to reach population. Nearly 2 million children were not counted in the last census. This under count seriously impacts public funding, resulting in overcrowded classrooms, fewer child care options and stressed health care systems.
That is why it is so important for those already working with families with young children to know about the census and to let others know the how to and the importance of completing the census. HMHB has created a toolkit to help our partners with this important work!
