What is the 2020 Census?

Post Date:11/19/2019 4:24 PM

 

The census is an official, legally mandated, count of those residing in the United States of America. An accurate population count is required by law and is the basis for fair political representation and distribution of government and non-profit funding. Each person counted results in about $1,535/person of funding for our community. 

  • State population data is used to reapportion seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  • State and local officials use census results to redraw congressional, state, and local district boundaries to meet the one-person, one-vote rule.
  • Governments and nonprofits use census data to plan new roads, hospitals, schools, and other investments.
  • Census data are vital to businesses to address the changing needs of our population.
  • In 2015, Census data were used to distribute more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities like ours.
