Pop-Up 2020 Census Helpers in West Virginia

With West Virginia at an overall self-response rate of 53 percent so far, and their local county at not even 40 percent, the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) of Greater Wheeling recently held a “Pop Up Census.”

According to a news report, NAMI opened a “drop-in center” in Wheeling “to help anyone that walked in the door who might be on the fence about giving away personal information. Some community members may be homeless; some may not have access to a computer; and some may have been confused on how to get counted. But now all had resources at their fingertips.”
