2020 Census Information
Bordentown Township is partnering with Bordentown Regional School District to promote taking action on the 2020 Census. At the same time, local groups including faith centers will also ask residents to take action. Each address (household) must fill out a Census 2020 questionnaire. The questionnaire is relatively short, taking about a minute per person living in the household. Make sure you count everyone in your household, from the newborn to the great grandparents that reside at your address. The federal government uses these numbers to allocate federal funding ($675 Billion dollars). The money goes towards schools, infrastructure, and emergency services. Corporations use the data to decide regional mobilization including the building of factories, stores, and offices. Hospital beds per person have gone down since 2012. This census will allow medical institutions to correct that. Although the data may be too late to help with the needs of COVID-19, it will allow us as a nation to prepare for the future. We need everyone to do their part to make sure federal spending is allocated by a true number of individuals in each area of the country. In short, in a few minutes of your time, you can shape the future of Bordentown, New Jersey, and the United States of America for the next decade. Please help us reach 100% self-response rate. The Census Bureau is asking each person this month, when checking in with work, family, or friends, to ask them to fill out the Census. We are asking you the same.
