2020 Census: Door-to-Door Canvassers Hope to Increase Broward's Response Rate

Read the Broward County announcement here.
The U.S. Census Bureau has begun door-to-door canvassing to count residents who have not yet responded to the 2020 Census questionnaire. It is important for residents to know that they may be visited by a Census worker in the coming weeks if they have not already responded to the Census. The best way to avoid a visit by a Census worker is to complete the Census online at

Census Ends September 30! Take Action Now -- Attention Neighbors! The U.S. Census Bureau is ending all counting efforts for the 2020 census on September 30, a month earlier than previously announced. That means we all need to work together to take action today! Please help the City of Oakland Park be accurately counted in the 2020 Census. Currently, Oakland Park’s response rate is more than 60%, but we need to achieve a much higher completion rate. Counting every neighbor in our City gives us an opportunity to receive our fair share of more than $1.5 trillion in federal funding for infrastructure, schools, housing, roads, healthcare, and public service programs. An accurate census count also provides critical funding for hospitals, disaster recovery, and emergency readiness for pandemics like COVID-19. Please respond to the 2020 Census today! Fill out and mail back the questionnaire sent to your home; complete the census form online in just five minutes at; or take the census over the phone at 1-844-330-2020.

Complete the census safely here and please view this important Census message from Oakland Park Mayor Matthew Sparks
