BP Adams: Brooklyn Residents Need To Fill Out Census Forms Or Borough Could Lose Funding (and representation)

Mary Frost in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle writes “(m)ore than 80 percent of Brooklyn’s 2.6 million residents live in areas identified as “hard to count,” according to the City University of New York (CUNY) Mapping Service.

This could come back to haunt the borough in the 2020 Census. Census figures factor in obtaining federal funding for health care, schools, housing, security, infrastructure, transportation and more. An undercounted population means Brooklyn loses out on much-needed funding it is entitled to.”
