REALTORS® Announce Partnership with Census Bureau
By Rich Cosgrove, President Stark County Association of REALTORS®
The United States Census Bureau has designated the National Association of REALTORS® as a National Partner for the upcoming 2020 Census. The National Association of REALTORS® is America’s largest trade association. With over 1.4 million members, it is composed of residential and commercial brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers and others engaged in the real estate industry.
The census ensures that all states, based on their population, have proper representation in Congress. The data is also used to determine federal funding and resource allocation to hospitals, schools, libraries, housing programs and more. Participating in the census can help make your town a great place to live.
With this partnership, the Bureau will provide REALTORS® with promotional materials that they can share with clients and neighbors. The census data can help the National Association of REALTORS® forecast and make projections about housing industry growth, evaluate trends in generational housing demands, better understand the population of homeowners who have been affected by natural disasters, etc.
Notices about the 2020 Census will be mailed in mid-March by the United States Census Bureau. This year will mark the first time the questionnaire can be completed online, while options to respond over the phone and through the mail will still be available. Keep in mind, that the Bureau will never ask for bank account or social security numbers, donations or anything on behalf of a political party, and strict federal law protects the confidentiality of Census responses.
As the President of the local association of REALTORS®, I want to encourage everyone to participate in the 2020 census. The information collected will help better our local communities and ensure Stark and Carroll counties are represented accurately.
