Learn More About the Missouri 2020 Census

With COVID-19 at the forefront of our thoughts, it’s easy to forget that we’re also in the middle of the Missouri 2020 Census.  While Missouri has an overall self-response rate of 62.1% (slightly higher than the national average), St. Louis’ rate is 49.5%.  For every person that is not counted in the census, Missouri will lose $1,300 in federal money every year.  Due to the results of the 2010 Census, Missouri lost a congressional seat and hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding.

The 2020 Census will continue through October 31, so there is still time to make sure that #MissouriCounts. If you’re interested in learning more, visit the Missouri Counts website and check out its resources.  Please help us spread the word about the Missouri 2020 Census!
