    Event Description:
    City Councilwoman, Barb Girtman speaks regarding the 2020 census.

    Data collected by the 2020 Census will affect how more than $675
    billion in federal funds will be distributed to state, local and tribal
    governments each year. It also will be used to draw state legislative
    districts and determine the number of seats each state has in the House
    of Representatives.

    In mid-March, every household in the United States will receive an
    invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. For the first time, they
    will have the option of responding online, by phone or by mail.

    In 2010, 74% of Volusia County households in Volusia County completed
    their census forms; this equaled the national response rate. Those who
    did not respond received visits from census workers, who helped them
    complete the form.

    Residents are required by law to complete and return the forms by April
    1. The Census 2020 form will ask for name, age, gender, race, date of
    birth, relationship to the head of the household, and whether the
    respondents own or rent their home. It will not include a citizenship
