AARP Mississippi held this Access Live event called, “The 2020 Census: Why It Matters to You and Your Community” to connect with members and discuss the $10.1 billion reasons that Mississippians should care about the 2020 Census, the 500,000 jobs the Census Bureau is hiring for right now, and how to actually take the Census in 2020. The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade. Participants asked guest speakers Jennifer Baier (Census Lead, AARP) and Kyra Roby (Partnerships Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau) about topics such as how to spot a Census scam, how participants’ data collected by the Census will be protected, and when they can expect to see invitations to respond to the Census, in particular, for those residing in rural areas.
