The U.S. Census, mandated by the Constitution, has been conducted every ten years since 1790. An accurate census count is essential: it determines the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives for each state. The data collected is also used to distribute billions in federal dollars to local communities. Governments, businesses, nonprofits, and others rely on this data to allocate funds, deliver services, evaluate programs, and forecast future needs.
It is a safe and quick way to shape the future of our communities. Your neighborhood, county, and state are counting on you!
