Workshop Scheduled To Ensure Accurate 2020 Census

November 26th, 2017

Potter County officials are going the extra mile to assure an accurate count during the 2020 census, in recognition of the high stakes. An accurate census could equate to hundreds of thousands of additional federal dollars coming to the county. For each uncounted citizen, a county and/or local government loses upwards of $10,000 in federal benefits during the decade. Census data are used to distribute more than 50 grant programs, including support for education, transportation, health and human services, housing, criminal justice, employment services, farming and environmental protection.

Potter County Planning Department and 911 staff have scheduled a Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) workshop for 1-3 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Gunzburger Building. LUCA is a review of addresses to ensure the Census Bureau’s records match county records. Township and borough officials are encouraged to participate in the workshop to ensure that their population counts are accurate. To register or learn more, call Rob Stabs at 215-717-1830.
