TAMUNING, Guam—The official website for the 2020 Census of Guam was launched yesterday, Jan. 28, at the Guam Census Office in Tamuning.
The website will provide information on the upcoming census as well as links to social media, statistics, and downloadable resources provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Census management gave an overview of the website’s features and talked about upcoming data collection activities, as the launch comes just ahead of the Feb. 3 start of Address Listing. During this monthlong operation, 2020 Census of Guam workers will be locating and listing houses, apartments, shelters, and other residences throughout the island.
“The new website will allow visitors to learn about the work we’re doing here and why it’s so important for Guam,” said Bernadine Gines, manager of the Guam Census Office. “It outlines what census workers will be doing out in the community, addresses some of the more frequently asked questions we’ve been getting, and will give regular updates on the progress we’re making as we conduct this year’s census.”
Flame Tree Freedom Center Inc., working for Galaide Group, designed and built the website under the direction of the Guam Census Office.
The 2020 Census of Guam is the once-in-a-decade population count of our island, providing a snapshot of our growing and diverse community. Responses to the 2020 Census of Guam will help to direct federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services. (PR)
