CULLMAN-Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04)  released the following statement in regard to the visit by the director of the United States Census Bureau, Dr. Steven Dillingham, to discuss Alabama’s plans for ensuring an accurate state count in the 2020 Census.

“It is vitally important that Alabama have a better Census participation rate than we did in 2010.   That year, only 72% participated.  We must do better than that. 

“Alabama has the population to maintain the federal programs our people need, but it is essential that the people of this great state are counted accurately in order to continue to qualify for the healthcare, transportation and education programs our state needs.”

“I greatly appreciate Director Dillingham coming to Cullman to hear the concerns many of us have about making sure people who live in rural areas have the same opportunity and ability to complete their census forms, as those who live in large, metropolitan areas.  Every American citizen should be counted no matter where they call home.”
