The decennial census counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, electoral college votes, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
The next census is coming in spring 2020, just over one year away. It is not too early to learn about it and join your community to plan for a complete count. The success of the census depends on everyone’s participation.
It’s easy; it’s important; and it’s safe!
