With billions in federal funds riding on the 2020 census, Dallas wants to make sure every resident counts
Herlinda Hernandez, 44, has lived in West Dallas most of her life. She doesn’t know much about the upcoming census or how the census works. She doesn’t recall filling out any previous census questionnaires, though she said her father may have been the one responding in the past.
“I would probably have my kids fill it out because they’re the ones who understand English,” Hernandez said.
She can’t remember census workers ever visiting her house in the La Bajada neighborhood behind the shops and restaurants at Trinity Groves. She says she’s not even sure what it is.
