The 2020 Census is a count of every person living in the United States. Through a national survey, the US Census Bureau collects critical data that affects your representation in government, determines how much funding our community receives, and provides data to help you plan for the future. School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need. Census results affect our community every day, and will for the next ten years.
