Why The U.S. Census is Important
The U.S. Census is taken every ten years to have a complete and accurate county of everyone living in the United States and its five territories.
The 2020 Census is more than a population count. It’s an opportunity to shape your community’s future.
The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.
The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade.
That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.
