Census Series Part One: “Who is required to respond?”
[VIDEO DESCRIPTION: DCARA staff in different roles of Narrator, Census Taker and Citizen. Narrator: Ian is wearing a black beret and v-neck dark shirt. Behind him is a blue gradient background. Census Taker: Michelle is wearing a cloth facial covering, a pair of glasses and floral v-neck blouse. Citizen: Amy is wearing a hooded dark green sweater.]
[Screen fades to show a Census Taker walking to the door. Citizen peeks out of the door and does a “hand brush-off” and does a turning away half way.]
[Screen shows a speech balloon bubble with Ian inside.]
Tip / Fact: Everyone living in the United States and five territories is required by law to be counted in the Census 2020. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. Census Takers have begun doing the home visiting to gather information for those who have not responded to Census’ mail form, phone calls or fill out via Census website to submit the information.
