The State of Illinois is over 99% counted. The Census Bureau has extended the deadline to respond to October 31, 2020.
Visit 2020CENSUS.GOV or call 1-844-330-2020 to respond to the census today.
The 2020 Census will be wrapping up operations on September 30. While 80 percent of Skokie’s households self-responded and many others have cooperated with in-person interview with census takers, there are still some that have yet to respond.
If you have not responded, please do so now online at my2020census.gov, by calling 844-330-2020, or by filling out the paper copy you received in the mail now.
An accurate count of Skokie’s population is essential to ensure that the Village receives the funding needed to properly care for our residents and provide critical services and programs. The failure to count everyone decreases funding for schools, public transit, food support, and Medicaid. Even a one-percent undercount could result in Skokie losing an estimated $2 million in state and federal funding over the next decade.
This the last chance for the next 10 years to be counted. The Census is safe. The Census is confidential. Your Census response cannot be shared with law enforcement or immigration officials.
We can’t wait another decade.
See how well your Skokie neighborhood is responding to the 2020 Census.
