If you remain among the estimated 20,000 in Michigan who have not yet responded to the census, time is getting short. The deadline has been extended to October 31 and state census director Kerry Ebersole-Singh says their work continues.
“This is super important,” she said today. “There’s been a lot of confusion.”
State demographer Eric Guthrie says they still have some worries.
“Our fear is that even with the additional three weeks through October 31st, the Census Bureau will not have enough staff or resources to ensure that underprivileged communities are fully counted,” said Guthrie.
Local committees and census workers are still going door-to-door for the rest of the month. Michigan is tied with Illinois for the seventh best response after being 17th in 2010. Expect to see plenty of digital ads on your computer and phone for the rest of the month.
