April 1, 2020, is Census Day.

Data from the Census will be used for the next ten years for many things – including determining New York State’s representation in Congress as well as local districting.

Census data is also used for the distribution of about $880 billion of federal funds to local municipalities according to a December 2018 report from the George Washington Institute on Policy.

The Census Bureau estimates that every person who is not counted equals a loss of approximately $2,500 per year to local municipalities. This means that every 400 people who are not counted equates to a loss of about $1 million in funding – each year. We need to get everyone living in Westchester counted!  For further assistance, stop by the Yonkers Public Library, and speak with a reference librarian.  We are here to help.
