Yonkers and the 2020 Census – April 15th Update

Every Wednesday is Census Day at Yonkers Public Library!

With data collected through Monday, 4/13, an estimated 39.8% of Yonkers households have completed their 2020 Census questionnaires. That’s lower than the rate for the New York State (42.6%) and nation (48.6%). We need to improve that rate for Yonkers to receive its fair share of federal funding and political representation! 

If you haven’t already, fill out your form at my2020census.gov. You have until August 14 to complete your census questionnaire, but don’t wait!

Census fact of the week

The Census Bureau is bound by Title 13 of the U.S. Code to keep your information confidential.

This law protects your answers to the 2020 Census. Under Title 13, the Census Bureau cannot release any identifiable information about you, your home, or your business, even to law enforcement agencies. The law ensures that your private data is protected and that your answers cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. Violating Title 13 is a federal crime, punishable by prison time and/or a fine of up to $250,000.

The answers you provide are used only to produce statistics. You are kept anonymous: The Census Bureau is not permitted to publicly release your responses in any way that could identify you or anyone else in your home.
