Every 10 years, the United States counts everyone who lives in the country. Here is what you need to know about the upcoming census and its importance to our community:
• By participating in the census, you will help Broome County provide an accurate count of all residents, which impacts federal funding of vital Broome County programs and services including transportation, housing, public safety, education and healthcare.
• Beginning in the middle of March 2020, you can respond to the census online, by phone or by mail. Participation is mandatory and all information is kept confidential.
