Lt. Governor Bysiewicz To Appear At Public Library Tuesday Morning For “Complete Count” Census In New Britain

Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz will appear at the New Britain Public Library, 20 High Street, on Tuesday, January 28th, at 10:30 a.m. on behalf of the “Complete Count” 2020 U.S. Census campaign in Connecticut.

Bysiewicz leads the 2020 Census Connecticut Complete Count Committee in the effort to count every resident in the state this year and will share information on the Census drive in Connecticut including available jobs and ways to make sure you are counted.

“An accurate census count is critically important to our state as it is the foundation to determine federal funding allocations. The data collected by the 2020 census affects all of us, not just in government, but also private businesses, schools, hospitals, non-profits, and other public and private entities, said Bysiewicz when the CT Committee was launched last year. “Currently, Connecticut is ranked first in the nation for paying the most in federal income taxes and we are amongst the lowest in getting federal dollars in return.”

Every 10 years, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States. Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support vital programs—impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy. They also are used to redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts and accurately determine the number of congressional seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The census will begin in earnest in March via a massive mail, online and outreach campaign to obtain an accurate and complete count of residents in the U.S.
