April 1 is Census Day

03/31/2020

April 1 is Census Day across the country and throughout Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque.
 

The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County census committee is encouraging everyone to take the time on April 1 to fill out the questionnaire and be counted.

To draw attention to Census Day, local radio and television stations along with various social media sites, such as Facebook, will be hosting informational segments to get the Census 2020 word out.

“The Census is something that only happens every 10 years,” says Kristina Nelson Albuquerque/Bernalillo County census coordinator. “But an undercount in Bernalillo County could cost all us millions of dollars in program monies over the next decade.”

The United States Census is a survey collecting information about residents and their living and family status. The census does not include questions regarding legal residency.

The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County census campaign has already awarded grant money to partner organizations who have pledged to educate, inform and count various groups within the census area.

The official census count began March 12 and has now been extended into mid-August giving all residents the chance to be counted.

Residents can go online at Census2020.gov to fill out a questionnaire or they can submit a questionnaire by mail. As of today, census field workers will not be knocking on doors and completing questionnaires, until mid-May.

For more information go to: census.gov; icountnm.gov, bernco.gov or cabq.gov.
