True or false? There will be a question on the census in 2020 that asks individuals to indicate their citizenship status.
Think about it in your own life: How many people in YOUR household should be counted in the 2020 census?
How can your parents fill out the census in 2020? Check all that apply.
Reflection: You already looked up why the government conducts the census. Now think about your own life and community. How do you think the census data will most affect your life, your family, or your community?
Action: Now it is your turn to take what you learned today and spread the knowledge! Talk to your parents about the census today. Ask them whether they have already filled it out and/or whether they plan to (and whether you can do it with them!) Help to answer their questions and remind them that the YWCA Central Maine is available to help, too!
