As of mid-August, 78% of Middletown Township residents have completed the 2020 Census. The Census impacts political boundaries and the allocation of state and federal resources.
Mandated in the Constitution, the Census counts everyone in the United States every ten years. While Bucks County leads the way in responses to the Census of all counties in Pennsylvania, Middletown Township still has 22%, or nearly 10,000 people that have not yet been counted. This translates to more than $20,000,000 each year of state and federal resources that will not be allocated to our community.
According to census tract data, the most undercounted neighborhoods are located along Durham Road.
Anyone needing to respond to the 2020 Census can do so online by going to www.census.gov. Respondents are instructed to use the address they were living in on April 1, 2020, to complete the Census.
