2020 Census

About the Census

Every ten years, the United States conducts a census to count every person living in the United States. This is mandated by the U.S. Constitution.

An accurate Census counts helps to ensure that each city and state has fair representation at all levels of government. It also provides data for research, decision making and planning for both public and private programs. The census information is used by governments, universities, nonprofit organizations, medical facilities and the business community.

Census information also impacts the federal funding a city will receive over the next decade. It is estimated that more than $675 billion in federal investment is allocated based on data gathered during the census.

They are divided into six subcommittees:

  • government
  • faith-based
  • business
  • media
  • education
  • community organizations
