Census Day of Action for AL Businesses on Aug.12th


Alabama’s future is counting on the participation of the 2020 Census. Alabama businesses are encouraged to participate in the Census Day of Action scheduled for this upcoming Wednesday to allow employees a break in the workday to fill out their census forms. The census is vital to the wellbeing of the state and there are many people who have yet to complete the six minute form. The census can be completed online, by phone or by traditional paper form.

If Alabama’s count falls shy of the 72% participation rate recorded in the 2010 Census, the state will lose representation in Congress, followed by the loss of millions of dollars toward education, economic development, and more. The last day to take part in the 2020 Census is September 30th. The state’s current participation rate is at 60.6%. To complete the census online, visit alabama2020census.com.
