Zufall Health is hosting a “Chalk Art Contest” for towns with a low response rate to the 2020 Census. We have selected North Plainfield (Census tract 517) with a response rate of 48.1% and Bound Brook (Census tract 511) with a response rate of 44.6% as of July 29, 2020. We want to help these two towns increase their Census response rates and spread awareness of the importance of everyone being counted. Zufall will be distributing chalk bags to the neighborhoods selected within those two towns. The winner of the Chalk Art Contest is determined by the town that has the greatest response rate change on the Census 2020 response rate map between now and August 17th.
