U.S. Census 2020 is almost here!
Census Day is April 1, 2020. Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a population census for reapportionment of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and updating congressional district boundaries.

The demographic information collected is also used to inform the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to local communities. More than 70 federal programs, including education, health, job training, and transportation programs use Census numbers as part of their formulas for funding allocations. Ventura County's current share of this funding is about $1.7 billion annually.

A failure to count everyone can result in significant consequences for local communities. It is estimated that each person uncounted results in an approximate loss of $20,000 in federal funding during the 10-year period between each census. 

Furthermore, the statistical data the Census provides is very valuable to our business community. The statistical data the Census provides helps businesses make informed decisions about where to locate, add jobs, expand, as well offer competitive salaries and wages.
