In an op-ed in The Marysville Globe this week, Arlington Mayor Barb Tolbert outlines why her city is engaging early on outreach and data preparation for the 2020 Census:
This is local governments’ last chance to update the Census Bureau’s address list before April 1, 2020, Census Day. This program allows local jurisdictions to submit city style mailing addresses for housing units constructed and/or completed after address canvassing and LUCA. This program will be conducted in June through August of 2019.
This program offers federally recognized tribes, state tribal liaisons, local governments, councils of government, and regional planning organizations the opportunity to review and modify select statistical boundaries that the Census Bureau uses to report the data that they collect. Registration will be March-May 2018. The work will be completed January-July 2019.
