TIME: 12 Noon to 2:00PM
LOCATION: Faulkner Gallery, Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is preparing for the 2020 United States Census count. The data collected by the decennial census determines how seats are apportioned for the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. There is so much more to know.

How will the US Census affect the State and local community of Santa Barbara? What are the National, State and League of Women Voters roles in collecting census data? What is “complete” count? What are the fears and solutions regarding immigrants and security of personal data? What information does the census collect from the basic census questions and from the more expansive and mandatory American Community Survey?
