- Louise M. Harley, Program Analyst, Integrated Partnership and Communications Branch, Decennial Communications Coordination Office, U.S. Census Bureau
The 2020 Census will determine the distribution of over $675 billion in annual allocations to communities. This will be the first time the Census will offer an online self-response option. With 25% of housing units without internet connectivity, these individuals may be using library resources to respond. This webinar discusses the complexities of the Census and how libraries can assist in helping secure an accurate count in their communities.
