What is a census? Why is it important? – The 2020 census is rapidly approaching. Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States.

The Census Bureau counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually.

The Census Bureau determines funding for local colleges and universities for things like federal student loans, research grants, technology, campus improvements and health and social services.

Taking part in the census is your civic duty. Completing the census is not only mandatory, but a way to participate in our democracy and say, “I Count.”
