Tulsa leaders and social service agencies who depend on population numbers are working to get an accurate census count in 2020. Mayor G.T. Bynum announced a local effort to get everyone included. He says billions in federal dollars are allocated based on census data and private sector companies use census data in re-locations and expansions. The Mayor issued a proclamation declaring Tulsa a partner in the 2020 Complete Census Count drive.
The official start of the 2020 census drive is one year away.
