Yonkers and the 2020 Census – April 29th Update

Every Wednesday is Census Day at Yonkers Public Library!

With data collected through Monday, 4/27, an estimated 46.3% of Yonkers households have completed their 2020 Census questionnaires. That’s lower than the rate for the New York State (47.9%) and nation (53.7%). 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 now have until October 31st to complete your census questionnaire, but don’t wait!

Census fact of the week

Will filling out the 2020 Census impact whether you receive a stimulus check?

No. Your answers cannot be used to impact your eligibility for any government benefits, including any potential stimulus package. The Census Bureau is bound by Title 13 of the U.S. Code to keep your information confidential, and the answers you provide are used only to produce statistics.
