Census Deadline Extended: Royal Oak Map Shows Response Rates by Neighborhood

Census Deadline Extended: Royal Oak Map Shows Response Rates by Neighborhood

Royal Oak Needs You!  Did you know the census count is how funding from the federal government is calculated?  It is and $29 Billion in federal funding was allocated to Michigan during the past decade based on population data from the 2010 Census.  Make sure you are counted because we need you now more than ever!

The census does not end with the month of April – in fact counting usually goes through the summer months but with COVID-19 Stay Home orders, the deadline to be counted has been extended to Oct 14,2020.  It’s easy, just nine questions to answer and your answers are completely confidential – all responses are protected by law and kept confidential for 72 years. The U.S. Census Bureau never shares a respondent’s information with any other governmental agency or outside entity.
