2020 marks the next decennial census nationwide. An accurate count in the 2020 Census is vitally important to the future of Coral Springs as census data is used to determine how nearly $675 billion is annually distributed for Federal funds annually to states, counties, and communities to support resources such as schools, hospitals, and fire departments. Census 2020 marks the first year that forms will not be mailed to residents. Instead, they will complete their questions online. 

Staff formed a Complete Count Committee to help coordinate outreach efforts to residents. This Committee was active for approximately one year and  was sunset upon completion of the Census. The group established subcommittees that focused on areas such as Cultural and Ethnic, Hard to Enumerate, Promotions, and Interfaith relations. The Complete Count Committee worked with long-established committees like the Multicultural, Customer Involved Government, and School Advisory Board, to promote outreach efforts. 

Funding was utilized to prepare and implement a strong, local marketing plan along with reaching out to various strategic populations and/or non-profit groups to train and aid in the filling out of the questions online. 

Self Response period & non response follow up have concluded.  The final self response for Coral Springs totaled 72.2%. Final enumeration were due by December 31, 2020 pending the results of the United States Supreme Court ruling in Trump v New York & the ability of the United States Census Bureau to complete tabulation on a shortened timeline.  The USCB did not meet this 12/31/2020 deadline and are now anticipating for delivery by October 1, 2021.  The results will be presented to the City Commission at a  Fall workshop.
