Everyone Counts

Historically, some residents have been easier to count during U.S. Census years than others. In fact, it is estimated that 35% of Fulton County’s population lives in hard-to-count neighborhoods. These neighborhoods include: 

Hard to count census tracts

  • Children under the age of 5
  • Foreign-born residents
  • Homeless residents
  • Low-income households
  • Non-English language households
  • People of color/minorities
  • People who distrust the government and/or law enforcement
  • Renters who do not own their homes
  • Residents who do not hold college degrees
  • Single-parent households

Yet, in order to ensure the best possible future for the City of Atlanta, it is critical that every Atlantan household submits its completed census survey before April 1, 2020. Here is what you can do to help.

  • Encourage your adult children and elderly parents to complete their 2020 Census Surveys, and offer help, if needed.
  • Talk to your employees about the importance of participating in the 2020 Census.
  • Educate your students, parishioners, community members, etc. about the U.S. Census.
  • Become an ATL Counts Census 2020 Neighborhood Ambassador!
