Preparations Underway in Bering Strait for 2020 Census

Printer-friendly version

THE ALASKA CENSUS WORKING GROUP is getting the word out about the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census, which is set to start in Toksook Bay this January. Group members like Laurie Wolf, the president and CEO of the Foraker Group, emphasize the significance of an accurate census count for Alaska.

“Lots of things are impacted by the census count, but one of them is how federal dollars are allocated to every state, so that $3.2 billion is how much federal funds have been flowing historically into Alaska, and the census data is part of that equation.”
