Census 2010: Who Counts?

The 2010 census will determine Oregon’s share of more than $400 billion in federal funds for schools, hospitals, job training and more. Census data also provides facts that help with research and advocacy on topics ranging from disease prevention to disaster preparedness.

On February 26, Friday Forum participants will learn about the local impact of the 2010 Census from Multnomah County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury and Michael Burns, Deputy Regional Director of the U.S. Census Bureau and Marc Levy, CEO of the United Way of Columbia-Willamette. The speakers will explain how the Census count directly impacts Oregon’s federal funding and congressional representation, and how it gives local government an accurate picture of who lives in the community and their needs. They will discuss methods to increase Census turn-out and will share how government is partnering with non-profits to reach out to individuals, such as the homeless, who are typically hardest to count.
