According to NYC Census 2020
The 2020 Census is around the corner — and it will shape New York City’s future for years to come.

Once every ten years, the United States Census takes a count of every person in the United States. The taking of the census is mandated by the United States Constitution and has occurred every 10 years since 1790.

But the census is so much more than just a count. Census information is used to determine New York City’s fair share of $650 billion in federal funds for public education, public housing, infrastructure, and more — as well as the number of seats we have in Congress.

Because so much is at stake, it's critical that New Yorkers stand up and be counted in the 2020 Census.

In the 2010 Census, the city’s self-response rate was less than 62%, compared to the national average of 76%.

We need every New Yorker to get involved to ensure that their community is counted next year.

The Roosevelt Island 2010 Census Self Response Rate was 71.3%, higher than the 61.9% average for NYC but lower than the national of 75.8%
