Want to shape our community’s future? 2020 Census cards went out in the mail in March and filling it out means equal and accurate representation for communities like ours. For the 2010 Census Texas only had a 64.4% response rate, and Borger’s was 62%. In order to have resources and representation that match our population, we need to make sure we are counted, and that starts with you. Census Data is used all around you. The Census Bureau collects data year-round for emergency management professionals at the federal, state and local levels; real estate developers use the census to build new homes and revitalize old neighborhoods; businesses use census data to decide where to build stores, restaurants, offices, and factories; State officials use the results to redraw the boundaries of their congressional and state legislative districts and much more!
