The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade we take a count – or census – of America’s population. The count determines how many representatives serve in Congress from each state and how much federal funding is distributed among the states annually to counties and communities to support resources such as roads, schools, hospitals, and emergency services.
By April 1, 2020, every household will receive an invitation to participate in the census online, by phone or by mail. There will be 7 simple questions. For more information regarding the US Census, click the link below:
