National Census Day

Census 2020

What is a census?

A census is an official, complete count of a population. A census may also record details about each person such as age, sex, and living arrangement. Unlike a survey, which captures data for a sample of the population and uses that sample to infer characteristics for the larger population, a census aims to count each person.

WHEN DOES THE 2020 CENSUS START?

While April 1, 2020 is officially Census Day, preparation for the population count starts nearly a decade in advance, and enumeration takes place over several months. The 2020 Census kicks off in January 2020 with the population count in remote parts of Alaska—while the area is frozen and traversable. [3] Notices and forms will start arriving in the mail in March 2020. For households that don’t respond to the census, nonresponse follow-up begins in April 2020 and wraps up at the end of July 2020.

The Census Bureau will publish apportionment population counts (used to redistribute the 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives) within nine months of Census Day—by December 31, 2020.

WHY THE CENSUS MATTERS IN FLORIDA

People who live in Florida could miss out on a lot if everyone is not counted in the Census. Florida could lose out on the political representation it deserves. And people and communities could be denied money that they need for schools, community health care, jobs, and transportation.

In 2016, Florida received more than $44 billion from federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. Florida can’t afford to miss out!

Florida CENSUS COST/Benefit

Despite gains in recent iterations, the census has traditionally struggled to get a complete count of low-income communities, particularly those with a high population of communities of color. Ensuring they are properly counted in the 2020 Census is the first step to ensuring that these voters are represented in the redistricting process and policy debate moving forward.

Stand Against Racism
Apr 23 – Apr 26 all-day
Stand Against Racism

YWCA Greater Miami-Dade, Inc. is on a mission to Stand Against Racism!

We take a Stand Against Racism every day by raising awareness about the impact of institutional and structural racism and by building community among those who work for racial justice.

Stand Against Racism provides the opportunity for communities across the United States to find an issue or cause that inspires them to take a #StandAgainstRacism and to unite their voices to educate, advocate, and promote racial justice.

This year, the annual Stand Against Racism campaign will take place April 23 – 26, 2020.  We invite you to join and organize with us as we focus on the myriad of racial justice issues that pose barriers to civic engagement for communities of color. Most importantly, we invite you to explore how the tools of civic engagement can advance the work of justice in your community and empower people of color.

As we gear up for both Stand Against Racism and the 2020 Census, we know the importance of civic engagement in racial justice work. Voting rights, census participation, and civic engagement are, and have always been, core components of racial justice. As civil rights continue to be eroded for communities of color, it is more important than ever to support full access and engagement for marginalized communities, especially women and girls of color, in the political process.

Our collective efforts can root out injustice, transform institutions, and create a world that sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

More details about our Stand Against Racism campaign coming soon!
