Earlier this year, the Census Bureau announced that a nine county area of West Virginia has been selected to conduct an “End-to-End” Test in preparation for the 2020 Census. The area selected for this test is Bluefield-Beckley-Oak Hill, West Virginia (Includes Fayette, Greenbrier, McDowell, Mercer, Monroe, Pocahontas, Raleigh, Summers and Wyoming Counties).

An office will open in Beckley WV in 2017 to manage the census test. Address canvassing occurs in 2017 and Census Day is April 1, 2018.

On Wednesday, November 16 at 10:00 AM in the WV Development Office, there will be a very informal "meet and greet" briefing on the 2018 Census Test, as well as plans for the 2020 Census in West Virginia. If anyone is interested in attending please notify Benjamin Balding:
