On Tuesday, February 25 from 12:00-1:30 we will hear from US Census 2020 partnership specialists from Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. They will explain how Census 2020 is working in our region to make sure the count is as accurate as possible and to make sure people are protected from fraud.
2020 is a year of change. This will be the first year that people will have the opportunity to fill the Census in on-line. People who live in rural areas and who are either very old or very young are at the most risk for not being counted. An accurate count has funding ramifications for the next decade. However, with new methods of collecting data come new opportunities for fraud.
Learn what information will — and won’t — be asked and how the information will be collected to help you to protect yourself and others from becoming the victim of fraudsters who see the census as an opportunity to steal money and identity from hapless victims. The findings of Census 2020 can increase opportunities for older people to have a good life, access to needed health care, and services we need to live our best lives. Join us to learn how age-friendly organizations and lifelong communities can do their part to protect people from fraud and make sure that everyone is counted.
