What is the Census? The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. Census 2020 is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. It is Census 2020 awareness period as the official count begins April 1, 2020.
