The Census is so important because Census data guide how more than $675 billion of federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year, and how much representation each state receives in the House of Representatives. The goal of the Census is to count every person living in the United States, once, only once and in the right place, every 10 years as mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. There’s a lot at stake, so don’t delay. Complete it now, and make your Census count!
