CENSUS 101: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The 2020 Census is closer than you think! Here’s a quick refresher of what
it is and why it’s essential that everyone is counted.
Everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the United States once,
only once, and in the right place.
It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years, the results of the census
are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats
each state gets.
It’s in the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution mandates that everyone
in the country be counted every 10 years. The first census was in 1790.
It’s about $675 billion.
The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants, and support
to states, counties, and communities are based on census data. That money is
spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs.
It’s about redistricting. After each decade’s census, state officials
redraw the boundaries of the congressional and state legislative districts in
their states to account for population shifts.
Taking part is your civic duty.
Completing the census is mandatory: it’s a way to participate in our democracy
and say “I COUNT!”
