U.S. Census: It's time to shape our future
Once a decade, America
ticipate in the decennial census.
The goal is to ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities. This information will help our communities when they come back together.
Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. Your community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. When you respond to the census, you help your community get its fair share of the more than $675 billion per year in federal funds spent on area agencies on aging, schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.
Everyone counts. Respond online, by phone or by mail--and encourage family, friends and neighbors to do the same.
The Census Bureau is required to keep respondent information confidential.
