All You Need to Know about the
Every ten years, the U.S. Department of Commerce Census Bureau records every person in the 50 states, District of Columbia and the U.S. territories. Stephen Rolandi will talk about the process, which will be somewhat different this year, at a Home on the Sound program on Tuesday, March 24. For the first time, Americans can respond to the questions online as well as by mail and phone.
The count is mandated by the Constitution. The results have an enormous impact on representation in Congress, the Electoral College, and budget appropriations for housing, transportation and other government services.
Rolandi will outline how the results are likely to impact New York State and Westchester County. And he will offer his interpretation of some of the controversial issues surrounding this year’s count.
A political scientist and analyst, he teaches public policy, management and finance at Pace University and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York. Rolandi retired in 2015 after a distinguished career in public service. He served in the administrations of two NYC mayors and two New York State Governors.
