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
