Census Day is April 1, 2020

Since the very first United States Census in 1790, every year ending with zero has marked the big job of counting every person living in the United States and its territories. Census Day 2020 is fast approaching, and the Town of Clarkdale wants to make sure every resident is counted. Getting a "complete count" is essential to Clarkdale as the count drives the amount of funding our community receives from the Federal Government.
 
The U.S. Census Bureau wants everyone to know:

  • Every person, every age counts!
  • Personal information is safe, and legally protected.
  • Personal information will not be shared with other government agencies.
  • It’s easy! This year, you can respond online, by traditional paper form or by telephone.
  • We all have a civic duty to do our part and respond to the census.
  • A complete count benefits us all.
The Town is committed to working in partnership with the Census Bureau to count every person living in Clarkdale without regard to citizenship. One way the Town will ensure everyone is counted is by assembling an all-volunteer committee of citizens called a Complete Count Committee (CCC). The CCC will be a small group of engaged and active members of the community - perhaps you or your neighbor.  We believe the CCC can bring together the full spectrum of residents, from each neighborhood, special interest, cultural, ethnic and socio-economic group.

Town Staff hopes to select five Clarkdale citizens to form a Complete Count Committee by the end of October 2019.  Staff will give a short presentation and the committee will work together to make a game-plan for the next few months leading up to Census Day.  The CCC will start showing up at Town sponsored events (calendar coming soon) to educate the community, answer questions and encourage everybody to be counted. You can help by spreading the word!

More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
