Let’s make sure everyone counts in census

Posted

Exciting news for the City of Centennial! The Census Bureau recently listed Centennial as having the highest response rate for completion of the 2020 Census (for cities over 100,000) in the United States.

Congratulations Centennial, so far our response rate is 85.3%, but we’re not done yet. Census workers have started knocking on doors of those who have not filled out their Census in an effort to make sure everyone is counted. These workers may visit a home up to six times in order to reach our citizens.

It is not too late for individuals to respond to the Census by completing and mailing back the paper questionnaire, responding online at 2020census.gov or by calling 844-330-2020.

Data used from the Census is used to:
• Determine how federal funding will flow into our area whether it be for schools, social services or transportation.
• Establish how many representatives each state gets in Congress;
• Redraw state and federal legislative district boundaries;
• Help ensure Centennial citizens are represented.

Please know your response to the Census will impact our community for the next decade.

And last but not least, help Centennial’s response rate stay #1! We have received a challenge from Sterling Heights, Michigan, who is currently the #2 city in the Census response race. Mayor Michael Taylor of Sterling Heights, initiated a friendly challenge with Centennial to see which city ends up first. We want to remain in first place so we are asking for your help to make that happen!

Please complete your Census form and encourage your neighbors and family members to do the same. Let’s do what we can to make sure we’re all counted.

Thank you Centennial!

Mayor Stephanie Piko
