Westchester County to participate in regional challenge to push a greater response rate in the 2020 Census.

Westchester wins when everyone is counted, and that’s why Westchester County is competing in Census PUSH WEEK, a regional challenge to determine the states, counties, cities, towns and villages who will produce the greatest response rate in the 2020 Census. PUSH Week will run from July 27 through August 2, and is a great way to encourage Westchester County’s local communities to participate in the 2020 Census.

Latimer said: “The 2020 Census is safe, easy and important, and Westchester County depends on it. Census results help to determine how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated each year, so if you have not filled out your 2020 Census form yet, please take a few minutes to do so.”

Westchester County will be PUSHING the 2020 Census through the following efforts:  

  • “Make Us Count” Census 2020 Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) in English and Spanish to run on News 12 and other local media through Aug. 2.
  • Facebook Live on Westchester County’s 2020 Census Response Rate.
  • “Census 2020” Special Edition of My Westchester Newsletter
  • 3,000 Westchester County Census 2020 lawn signs to be delivered to local municipalities.
  • PSA’s to be played on Family Movie Night at Playland and Kensico Dam Plaza.
  • New Census Social Media Ads.
  • Westchester County Complete Count Committee to encourage local Complete Count Committees to participate in PUSH WEEK.
  • The distribution of 25,000 English and Spanish Census door hangs that have been handed out to the local municipalities and housing authorities, to encourage residents of multi-family properties to complete their Census forms.
