Partial Special Census Set to Begin

Partial Special Census Set to Begin

The new AMLI and Woodview luxury apartment developments completed construction in November 2015, and January 2016, respectively. With their opening, the estimated increase to the Village’s population is projected at 798 residents, over a 4% increase to the 2010 Census population of 18,225. Deerfield receives Federal and State funding on a per-capita basis. To recover our portion of Federal and State funding, Village staff investigated the feasibility of a Partial Special Census- a targeted count between the regular decennial Census cycle- to document the population increase in these two locations and qualify for the per-capita-shared-revenues sooner than would otherwise be the case.

On June 20, 2016, the Village’s Board of Trustees authorized an agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau to conduct a Partial Special Census for AMLI and Woodview residents. The Village anticipates receiving an increase in funding of, on average, approximately $52,000- $113,000 annually pending the Census results, at no additional cost to Deerfield residents. These funds are critical for the Village to provide essential services like street repair, public safety, programs for our seniors, and other important services we depend on every day.

*Updated Timeline* Weather permitting, the Census is expected to begin February 9, end February 20, and will only take place at AMLI and Woodview. The Village thanks these residents in advance for their cooperation and helping better the community as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau administered testing, finger printing, and background checks for all staff hired for this enumeration. Workers will wear a U.S. Census Bureau badge at all times.
