Once a decade, America comes together to participate in the decennial census!

We Count

Your participation in the census matters. It is critical for the planning and success of the decennial census. The goal of the census is to count every person living in the United States of America.

The census impacts where you live, work, and play.
The information collected on the census is used to determine:

  • The proper number of congressional representation
  • Federal funding
  • Social and economic planning
