Why the Census is Important?

Representation: The decennial count of all U.S. residents is required by the U.S. Constitution to determine representation in Congress and the Electoral College (known as reapportionment). This data is also the basis for drawing districts for federal, state, and local offices (known as redistricting).
Funding: The Census is key to the allocation of billions of dollars in federal funding to states and localities.
Information: Data resulting from the Census is widely used by researchers, governments, businesses, and other organizations.
