WEE I: Women, Money & Census
Time & Location
About the Event
The 2020 Census is right around the corner! In a few months, every household will receive an invitation to participate. Census participation doesn’t just shape political power, but population counts also decide if families and children can count on equal access to federally funded programs that support nutrition, education, housing and healthcare. We all have something to lose when our community has a low Census response. Since 2010, Ohio leveraged $21 billion in federal funding because of the last Census results. And for every person not counted in the Census, it will cost our state $1,814 per year, per person for 10 years. The question is, how can you contribute to this effort?
And since the Census Bureau derives gender-specific data from several surveys and the decennial census and produces many reports that contain data on women. How are these impacted women in community, marketplace and workplace?
