The census provides vital information for you and your community.
- It determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries. Redistricting counts are sent to the states by March 31, 2021.
- Communities rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of resident needs including new roads, schools, and emergency services.
- Businesses use census data to determine where to open places to shop.
It is our commitment to continue the great response in 2020 as we had in 2010. We need to be counted, because we all matter!
From the United States Census:
Each year, the federal government distributes hundreds of billions of dollars to states and communities based on Census Bureau data.
In 2020, we will implement new technology to make it easier than ever to respond to the census. For the first time, you will be able to respond online, by phone, as well as by mail. We will use data that the public has already provided to reduce follow-up visits.
And, we are building an accurate address list and automating our field operations-all while keeping your information confidential and safe.
