On Census Preparations, State Lags While City, Advocacy Organizations & Business Community Move Ahead

In the Gotham Gazette, Samar Khurshid tells us about city, state, private sector and business plans for Census 2020: “The census, the federal government’s constitutionally required every-ten-year count of residents of the United States, forms the basis for each individual state’s electoral representation, both locally and at the federal level, determines levels of federal funding states receive each year, and underpins dozens of human-facing programs carried out by state and local governments. Officials and advocates in New York City have already begun to marshall resources as they prepare for the nearly two-year effort that lays ahead, but the state has yet to pick up its feet despite a looming deadline.”
