Complete Count NJ

New Jersey needs a Fair and Accurate Census 2020. Check out our website, which includes interactive maps to find Hard to Count (HTC) areas near you, resources, news and more! For more resources, please visit the Advocates for Children of New Jersey website to stay up-to-date with state-wide efforts. Almost everything we know about our population and our communities comes from information collected during the decennial census and its related surveys. When New Jersey residents are not counted, the state loses funding and influence. Read the full policy paper.
