It’s Census Day and Arlington County will be holding a Twitter town hall as it encourages all residents to get counted.
Top local officials have been pushing for more Census participation, to help Arlington achieve greater congressional representation and receive more federal aid.
“As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, America gets just one chance each decade to count its population,” the county noted. “The collected data help to determine things like the number of seats Virginia has in the House of Representatives, and how to distribute federal funds to local communities like ours.”
More on Census Day from a county press release:
April 1 is Census Day! It is vital for all Arlingtonians to respond to the 2020 Census as the data are used for planning and providing community services, including planning for emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nearly half of Arlington’s residents have already been counted in the 2020 Census. We’re aiming for 100% and we need your help!
