It's Not Too Late to Complete the Census!


The 2020 Census is underway, and we want to get the word out that Everyone Counts in Edgecombe County!

Participating in the Census is very important, and your response matters. The number of congressional seats assigned to a state is determined by the Census. Also, nearly $700 billion of federal money is distributed to states, local governments and community organizations based on the Census. This money provides programs and services that benefit you and your community.
In the 2010 Census, Edgecombe County had a Census response rate of 75% (NC 76%). That means 25% of our households did not participate. Our goal is to improve that to at least 80%, but we need your help!

How Can You Complete Your Survey?
