census 2020

Pennsylvania’s representation in Congress will shrink, according to 2020 census data published on April 26. The state will have 17 seats in the U.S. House.

Data from last year’s census may not be ready until September, but data and legislative affairs experts say some aspects of the redistricting process can begin before then.

After a few deadline changes, the Census has officially ended its count on October 15th. But as WLVR’s Genesis Ortega reports, local city officials say it may be weeks before complete count numbers are available.

The Census count is continuing this week – now that the deadline has been pushed back again to October 31st. And that’s giving local cities a little more time to reduce undercounts.

The last day to collect responses for the census is Monday, Oct 5th. It’s the most recent date in a series of shifting deadlines. And as WLVR’s Genesis Ortega reports, it’s caused confusion for organizations that offer crucial services the census helps fund.
