Native organizations to bring awareness to census in urban Indian communities


January 24, 2020

Center for Native American Youth (CNAY), Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI), and National Urban Indian Family Coalition (NUIFC) have partnered to raise awareness around the 2020 Census and its importance to urban American Indian and Alaska Native communities nationwide.

In the past, American Indian and Alaska Native communities have had some of the lowest response rates to the census and are considered a “hard to count” population by the United States Census Bureau. A lack of resources, technological restrictions, and a distrust of government have been major factors in Native communities’ hesitancy toward completing the census.[value][date]=2020-1-23
