April 1 is Census Day, a key reference date for the 2020 census. The information collected by the census ensures fair representation of families and individuals in their local, state, and federal legislative bodies. It is also used to make important decisions by the government that affect families and communities, such as the allocation of funding for social services. For these reasons, the social service sector can play a critical role in this important process.
Despite the high stakes involved for all people residing in the U.S. the census has historically undercounted young children, people of color, rural residents, and low-income households at higher rates than other groups. Human service community-based organizations have an important opportunity as trusted partners to ensure the communities they serve know about the census and are completing it.
