What is the Census?

Every decade the United States Census Bureau conducts a count of all the nations’ residents. The next Census Day is April 1st, 2020. Getting counted is an important way to contribute to your community, today and for the next 10 years. Census data impacts essential public services provided by states and local governments like healthcare, public safety, education and transportation. The Census determines our representation in Congress and is used in redistricting at the state and local level. Your participation in the 2020 Census is safe and important to our community’s future.
