WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The 2020 Census deadline is set for 5 a.m. tomorrow.

As of Oct. 15, Wichita County is only at a 64.6% self-response rate while the city of Wichita Falls is at a 63.6% self-response rate.

The Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce says the city would lose an estimated $20,000 per person not counted over the next decade.

Losing that money would cause the city’s education resources, health care programs, infrastructure and much more to be underfunded.

The census deadline was changed several times this year but it is now set for Oct. 16 at 5 a.m.
