Liberty County Census Overview Presentation 2020

  1. 1. WHY IS THE CENSUS IMPORTANT? • Money. Qualify for an accurate portion of $675 billion in funding for essential programs and services. (About $2,300 per person per year). • Power. Count used to reapportion seats in Congress and assure proper district representation in state and local governments. • Data. See how our community has changed and use that data to plan for the future.
  2. 2. WHAT WE LEARNED FROM 2010 • Response rate was 71% • Under 5 age group was undercounted nationwide • Low response areas were Gum Branch, Walthourville, and unincorporated Hinesville • Lost out on about 14,000 people due to deployment (approx. $322 million withheld from our community)
  3. 3. GOAL To reach every resident of Liberty County, Georgia and Fort Stewart to make sure they are counted in the right place at the right time and have 80% of these residents respond by April 1, 2020.
  4. 4. LIBERTY COUNTY’S STRATEGY • Government • Military • Business • Community • Faith-Based • Education • Youth • Hard to Count • Media
  5. 5. TIMELINE January 2020 – March 2020 Engage target groups April 2020 Promote Census Month May 2020 Wrap-up outreach operations
  6. 6. FAQ How can I get employed? Employment is done online through the U.S. Census Bureau (not locally). Visit Will Fort Stewart be counted? Yes. Soldiers and their families stationed at Fort Stewart will be part of the Liberty County Census count. They will not use their home of record during deployment. Is it true the Census is online only? In 2020, people will have three options to self respond -- internet, phone, and paper. Internet is the preferred option and will be offered beginning March 12. How can I get involved locally? Contact Krystal Hart with your specific contribution. We are accepting volunteers and donors.
