Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count - or a census - of our nation's population. The census provides vital information for you and your community. Census data determines the number of state representatives in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries. It is used by communities to plan infrastructure projects, schools, emergency services, and more. It also determines the amount of Federal funds that are distributed to our local community.
Census Day is April 1, 2020.
Details on how and where you will receive your census survey will be provided as this date draws near.
