City to hold census training Wednesday

The City of Norman will host a 2020 Census training session at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the council chambers, 201 W. Gray St.

The city and partners throughout the community want every Norman resident to be counted in this year's census and has kicked off its Be Counted Norman campaign.

The federal government uses census data to help determine important local factors such as tax funding and representation in Congress.

Experts estimate each household that doesn't complete the census survey costs the community about $1,675 in local federal funding per person, per year for 10 years.
