Campaign continues to raise awareness of 2020 Census in Joliet, Crest Hill

Author: Editor

Local efforts to raise awareness about the 2020 U.S. Census are in full swing as groups work to educate the public on the importance of getting counted.

Community organizations and government officials have focused on informing residents about the census, especially in undercounted areas.

Data from the 2010 U.S. Census showed parts of Crest Hill and Joliet, specifically the near west side by the Des Plaines River and in and around the downtown area, qualified as “hard-to-count.” That means 73%, or fewer, of residents in those areas responded to the census that year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
