Join CHPC and our partners on Thursday, May 31, 2018 to discuss the importance of the U.S. Census to New York City and its residents—and how the housing industry will be affected and can help prepare for 2020. The event will show the impact of and need for good census data for researchers, planners, and practitioners, and the impact of the census on NYC and its citizens.
We need to come together to fight for a well-run Census in 2020. Find out about the progress for planning the Census, the potential risks, what is at stake, and what we can do to help.
We believe in facts! They are the foundation of our democracy and allow us to plan our cities.
Census data tells us about the demographics of our city so that we know where we need to build or preserve housing or develop services and civic infrastructure. Census data allocates our financial resources like and our political representation. CHPC will kick off the event by demonstrating its spectacular new Making Neighborhoods map of the demographic change New York City metropolitan region. This project relies on data from the decennial U.S. Census.
We will be joined by experts to discuss the ramifications of the census on NYC government—from federal funding to political representation—and how this might apply to the housing industry.
