*64% is the latest figure for census numbers counted in NY.
Still not good.

But a tiny bit better than 2010 (62%)

Well, this explains a lot about JH. We are far denser in population than is reported. And city/federal services to our area are not equal to our population.

For instance, the litter situation here is far greater than in similar neighborhoods elsewhere.

The response rates in much of Jackson Heights for the 2020 Census were 85% or more, much higher than the citywide (and Queens) average.

It looks like Jackson Heights is doing well, but nobody in Corona is answering the census presumably because of ICE.

^which is why everyone who was comfortable and could have cooperated with the Census enumerators should have. I've done the work myself, and it's frustrating how many neighbors will say they actually knew some basic information -- like how many people lived at an address -- but when you asked them to act as proxy, will decline. Even when you explain they can absolutely provide basic information and how it helps the community get funding and representation.

It's not like you become responsible for paying the income taxes of the people you act as a proxy for.
