As the census moves into a new phase of operations with in-person household visits beginning Aug. 11, what will the role of local governments and complete count committees be? The League partnered with the Association of Minnesota Counties and the Minnesota Association of Townships for a free webinar recorded live on Aug. 13 to help answer your census questions! Speakers from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Minnesota State Demographic Center provide overall context for the census, explain the role of the demographic center, and review tools available to local governments that will help you engage residents during these critical final months.
