Only 64 percent of Californians have responded to 2020 Census
Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today called on all Californians to complete their census questionnaire:
“The Census Bureau announced it’s ending all census counting efforts on September 30, one month earlier than planned. It’s now more important than ever that all Californians respond to the 2020 Census as soon as possible.
“Only 64 percent of Californians have been counted so far. With less than two months left, it’s critical that we bring that number up to 100 percent. Failure to complete census questionnaires would lead to a significant undercount, meaning California would lose out on federal funding and could lose seats in Congress for the next decade.
“Census participation is safe and secure. The 2020 Census does not contain a citizenship question. Residents’ legal status will not be asked or documented. Federal law protects the confidentiality of census responses and prohibits the sharing of individual or household data. It takes ten minutes to complete the census for your entire household and you can respond by phone, internet or mail.
“I urge every Californian to do their part to ensure their community receives the funding and resources it deserves. Please go to 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020 to complete your census form today.”
