2020 Census Information
March 12, 2020 a mailer was sent out to complete the 2020 U.S. Census. The disruption in everyone’s lives caused by the COVID-19 pandemic reinforces the importance of completing this questionnaire.
Responses to the U.S. Census affect our public health and disaster preparedness efforts across the County. Data collected from the Census will be used to allocate federal funding. Each person counted amounts to approximately $2,000 in funding annually for Yadkin County. This money is critical to the continuity of services and quality of services provided by the County.
This is the first time the Census can be completed online. Please take the time to complete the questionnaire today. Your response can have a real impact on Yadkin County and the future of our community.
