State officials are driving the United States 2020 Census in North Dakota that the number of state college students, tribal members, field workers and refugees can be arrested, or federal funds are missing in danger.

Gov. Doug Burgum Tuesday's executive order established by the Gross State Task Force, to include 15 members, will consider how best to count all residents in the Peace Garden State. The co-chairs are former Auditor / Treasurer McKenzie Linda Svihovec and former Assistant Chief of West Fargo Louise Dardis, who come from the fastest growing parts of the state.

"These population counts help us to determine everything from where to build a bridge over a river to the best place to open day care," said Lieutenant Gov. Brent Sanford in a press conference Tuesday at the Capitol state in Bismarck.

If a person is lost in the census, he will lose about $ 19,000 in ten-year federal dollars.

Approximately 3,000 census workers will arrive with families in North Dakota in 2020, a highlight in May and June next year, Sanford said.

Deputy Regional Director of the Census for Denver Region said Dennis Johnson said that a census office this summer in Bismarck will open a process of hiring state residents to become census workers. Census forms can be completed online, by phone or by post.

North Dakota added $ 1 million to the census register. Kevin Iverson, manager of the North Census Office, said that the purpose of the money will be determined as the task force focuses on its work for staff numbers strategies.

State officials say that precarious workers will count Bakken parkland oil, in the Country of India, where street addresses are not by many tribal members and in Cass County, the state's largest county and home of North Dakota State University in Fargo, where Many students from Minnesota.

Svihovec said that communities in North Dakota's oil country, such as Williston and McKenzie County, have made local “full committees” for the 2020 census. The task force will also work with North Dakota Petroleum Council next year.

"I expect all those things to be very helpful to get a better account in west North Dakota," Svihovec said to reporters.

Sanford, who was the mayor of Watford City during Bakken oil boom from 2010 to 2016, said various activities had arisen in counting new residents following the 2010 census of 1,700 people at home.

Studies of infrastructural planning estimated approximately 6,700 residents in Watford City, depending on household sewer use, utility accounts and post office boxes.

Scott Davis, executive director of the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission, said a tribal subcommittee will address census issues in Indian Country.

North Dakota has around 760,000 residents, according to 2018 figures.
