Census Planning Begins in Sugar Land

Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Manager recently appointed a Complete Count Committee to ensure an accurate and complete count of Sugar Land residents for the 2020 Census.

The Census count provides the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support state, county and local community programs impacting education, transportation, employment, health care, public policy and more. 

Sugar Land’s Complete Count Committee is responsible for education and outreach with an emphasis on informing residents about the importance and benefits of an accurate count. They will work to:

  • increase Sugar Land’s Census response rate through a focused, structured community campaign;
  • design and promote a Census awareness campaign targeted to the demographically diverse communities across the city; and
  • encourage prompt self-response to the Census, eliminating the time and federal tax dollars spent sending Census employees door-to-door to collect responses.

The Census’ address canvassing operation has begun, and it is possible residents may see workers in the community. The Census Bureau needs the address and physical location of each living quarter in the United States to conduct and tabulate the Census. An accurate list ensures that residents will be invited to participate in the Census and that the Census counts residents in the correct locations.

Census workers can be identified by their official identification badges with their name and photo.  They will also be carrying an official bag that displays the U.S. Census Bureau seal.  To confirm Neighborhood Canvasser Employment, visit http://www.census.gov/staffsearch or call (972) 510-1800 or toll free at (800) 582-6159.
