2020 Census is Coming
The 2020 Census is more than a count. It's a chance to stand up—for the places you call home, and the people you call friends, and neighbors, and family.
Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail.
From new clinics, to new schools, to new roads, the 2020 Census can help shape your community's future. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
It's also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.
