The 2020 Census Has Started!
Many people do not realize how much census data impacts their community. The census results affect the planning and funding of school programs, infrastructure, community services, and MORE.
Every 10 years, the U.S. Government counts every person living in the 50 states, including the District of Columbia, and five U.S territories (2020census.gov). The Municipality of Bethel Park is encouraging every resident to participate. Please take the time over the few weeks to fill out your census questionnaire. You have the option of responding online, by phone, or by U.S. mail. By mid March, households will begin receiving detailed information on howto respond to the U.S. Census. By April 1st, Census workers will begin canvassing neighborhoods.
For more information about why this is important, and why you and your families should be counted, please visit any one of the following sites:
