  13. 13. CONSEQUENCES OF BEING MISSEDNew York State & New York City • New York lost two Congressional seats after the 2000 census data were released. • About 136,000 Latinos living in New York State - mostly in New York City - were missed, meaning that hundreds of millions of dollars in federal dollars were lost for our community.
  14. 14. CONSEQUENCES OF BEING MISSED IIUndercount of Children • Children are often missed in large cities • Mayors in these cities have to maintain educational and social services programs to serve these children regardless of whether they receive funding. • School planners are confronted with more kids than they expect, resulting in increased class size and overcrowded schools.
  15. 15. Census 2010 - SOLUTIONS• Community organizations, leaders, neighbors and YOU • TRUST • Social Capital• Diverse organizers and language capacities• Knowing and conveying the correct information • Not about immigration status • Not being counted effect social programs, funds distribution, re-districting• Avoid door-knocking by Census 2010 surveyors when possible
  16. 16. Census 2010 - SOLUTIONS• Who are these hard to reach people? 1. Multi-family Housing Units 2. Renter Occupied Units 3. Occupied Units with More Than 1.5 Persons Per Room 4. Households that are Not Husband/Wife Families 5. Adults that are Not High School Graduates 6. People Below Poverty Line 7. Households with Public Assistance Income 8. People Unemployed
