You Count. We Count. Be Counted.
April 2020 Newsletter
Respond Now.  
Once every decade, the federal government conducts a census of the entire population of the United States. Many federal, state, and local programs are funded based on the data collected for the census.  When people respond to the census, they help their community obtain its fair share of the federal funds spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs. 

The 2020 Census Count is underway. It is critically important that every person in our state is counted, including those at risk of being missed.

Respond For Our Children.
The national obesity rate for youth, ages 10 to 17, was 15.3 percent, according to the most recent data from the National Survey of Children's Health (2017 and 2018 data combined). Children and youth are considered obese if they have a Body Mass Index (BMI) at or above the 95th percentile for children and youth of the same age and sex. Among the 50 states, the obesity rate ranged from 8.7 percent in Utah to 25.4 percent in Mississippi, North Dakota ranking 19th (from lowest to highest obesity rate).
