Philly Counts 2020

Posted on January 21, 2020

Philly Counts and a host of other organizations are working tirelessly to ensure all Philadelphians are counted as part of the census. Through trainings and outreach, they are working to spread the word to let all Philadelphia residents know how important it is that they are included. This includes non-permanent residents like students.

Philly Counts 2020 is the City’s effort to support the next United States Census. By working closely with community members and partners, this program aims to:

  • Increase understanding about the importance of the census.
  • Educate the public on how to participate.
  • Ensure responses from the public for a fair and accurate count.
  • Support filling census jobs.

The program is guided by the Complete Count Committee. Led by Mayor Kenney, this group provides recommendations and focuses on historically hard-to-count areas of the City.
