Officials urge Trentonians to be counted in 2020

BY David Cruz, Senior Correspondent |

The once-a-decade headcount of New Jersey residents is coming. The more people counted, the more representatives New Jersey sends to Washington and the more federal money the state gets back. Senior Correspondent David Cruz reports from Trenton, a city that delivered the worst census response rate in Mercer County a decade ago.

Correction 2/24: We previously reported that Trenton had the worst census response rate in the country. This is incorrect and should have have said county.
