Census 2020: Stand Up and Be Counted

Why the Census Matters

Here are some points to remind us all of the importance of participating in the census: 

  • Everyone counts. The census counts every living person in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right place. 
  • The U.S. Constitution requires a census every ten  years. The census covers the entire country and everyone living here. The first census was in 1790. 
  • It’s about fair representation. Every ten years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets. 
  • Your data is confidential. Federal law protects your census responses. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. By law, information from any individual cannot be shared with immigration enforcement agencies, nor can it be used to determine eligibility for government benefits.
  • It’s about redistricting. After the census, state officials use the results to redraw the boundaries of their congressional districts, adapting to population shifts. 
  • It means $675 billion. Census responses determine congressional representation in the states and inform how billions of dollars in federal funds are distributed to states and local communities every year for critical public services and infrastructure, including health clinics, schools, roads and emergency services.
