The PUSH to increase participation in the 2020 Census is on. A regional challenge is underway this week to see which county and major city can generate the greater self-response rate of residents to the 2020 Census. A Census Mobile Questionnaire Assistance event is being held in Danbury this afternoon at New Hope Baptist Church. Census takers will begin a soft launch of Census Non-Response Follow-Up operations in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties today, ahead of the August 11th official kick off. This is the first time that the 10 year population count can be filled out online. The event at New Hope Baptist Church is from noon to 3pm. Residents may still self-respond to the 2020 Census until October 31.
