The Pennsylvania Census 2020 Summit
The Pennsylvania Census 2020 Summit was held on May 20, 2019 at the Keystone Building in Harrisburg. US Census Bureau staff were in attendance as well as key local and statewide partners, stakeholders and leaders.
A complete and accurate count is in the best interest of all Pennsylvanians. The engagement of organizations and individuals about Census education and awareness is vital.
Remember $2,093! That’s the investment made per person by the federal government every year in our state. However, this number is based on the actual number of Pennsylvania residents counted on Census Day. We only have one chance to get it right. The $20,930 investment in our state for a period of ten years per person is crucial for health, education, infrastructure, economic development – it is a game changer in urban, suburban and rural development. When we do the math, the investment from the federal government to our state between 2020 and 2030 should be around $267.9 billion. WE MUST COUNT EVERYONE!
