As of October 7, the City of Milton has an 82.5% self-response rate for the 2020 Census. This places the City at 860 out of over 19,000 cities and villages in the entire country and 88 out of approximately 600 cities and villages in Wisconsin. This is an amazing accomplishment.
Our goal is to reach 100% and we need your help to do that. The deadline to complete the 2020 Census has been extended again to October 31.
The data gathered during the 2020 Census will affect the lives of our community members over the next 10 years.
Census data is used to inform decisions about how billions of dollars are allocated to federal and state programs, to determine how many seats each state has in the House of Representatives, to draw congressional and state legislative district lines, and to help make decisions about where businesses will locate, schools and clinics will be built, and more.
If you’ve already completed the 2020 Census, reach out to your friends, family, coworkers, and others (following physical distancing guidelines) and remind them to complete the census.
They can complete the census online at www.2020census.gov, by calling 844-330-2020, or by mail when they receive the paper questionnaire.
The Census Bureau will never ask for your full Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, anything on behalf of a political party, or money or donations.
If you have any questions about the census, please contact Administrative Services Director Inga Cushman at City Hall at (608) 868-6900 ext. 5 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
