Community groups are now desperate to make sure that every person in South Florida is counted. And, with just one week to go, organizations like the United Way of Miami-Dade and Florida Counts are working to boost response rates. “In 2010, Miami-Dade County missed (what we) estimate (costs) over $2 billion and now Miami-Dade County, at this point, is 5 points under where they were in 2010,” Susan Racher of Florida Counts said. “It is quite significant,” Christina Blanco of United Way of Miami-Dade County said. You can complete the census online at my2020census.gov, or easily complete it over the telephone before the closing deadline on Sept. 30.
