Take the Census

Post Date:03/19/2020 11:30 PM

Even during these challenging times, the U.S. Census goes forward all across the nation because it is of great importance to our community and country. It is very important that all residents be counted in the Census since the information will have impacts on issues such as community funding from a variety of sources for local services and infrastructure.

Your response does matter.

Every home should have received an invitation to participate online. It only takes 10 minutes or less. It’s all confidential. If a household has not replied online, you’ll get a paper form in the mail.

As of April 4, Paramount’s response rate was 39.4% compared to the statewide figure of 44.2%.

Let’s keep the momentum going.
